Try this super simple honey syrup recipe to sweeten coffee, tea, and cocktails! Making honey syrup keeps honey in a pourable, usable format that compliments a variety of drinks, desserts, and treats in the kitchen.


  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt


  1. Add honey, water, and a pinch of salt to a small pot over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the honey has dissolved.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool then store in an airtight container in the fridge and use as needed.


For thicker honey syrup, simmer for 15 minutes or reduce the amount of what to 1/2 cup. Note this will only yield 1/2 cup of syrup.

Honey syrup will last up to 3 months if stored in the freezer.
