Why Did My Honey Turn Into A Ball?
The simplest answer is that honey balls up when it’s cold. So, it makes a lot of sense that when it hits your cocktail it gets thicker. Fortunately, there are two easy ways to craft a quick honey syrup recipe for cocktails. Take a half cup of honey and a half cup of water and place them in a saucepan. Then slowly heat them. They’ll combine into a tasty syrup that you can add to your cocktail. If you don’t have that much time, try slowly drizzling the honey around the drink so it’s less likely to clump into one larger chunk.
