“Honey syrup makes for a truly satisfying, unique soda, and it is a perfect substitute for high fructose corn syrup in drinks. Since honey is made in all fifty states, search out your local brands. Makes 4 glasses.”
1 (32 ounce) bottle sparkling water
Honey Syrup: Heat honey in a small saucepan over medium heat for about 1 minute. Remove from heat. It shouldn’t be that hot; you should be able to put your finger in it. Add 2 tablespoons sparkling water and stir. Put syrup in a glass container and chill for at least 15 minutes.
Pour 1-2 tablespoons of honey syrup into a glass. Cover with sparkling water. Stir. For best results, chill glasses in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.
Variation: The honey becomes effervescent when the sparkling water is added – think honey latte. It is delicious drizzled over ice cream or yogurt.
