I love to use honey as a sweetener, but have you ever tried to use honey in a cold drink?  It becomes a hard blob that doesn’t dissolve.  Making a honey simple syrup is super easy and makes it much more mixable.   All you do it take equal parts honey and water and heat to combine.  To make it even one step easier, I make it in a glass measuring cup that’s microwave safe.  Heat for 30 seconds and stir.  Repeat until mixture is hot and fully blended.    It can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks and stays perfectly mixable.   This works perfectly to sweeten ice tea, coffee, cocktails or any recipe that needs a little sweetness.
