Sizzling Summer Favorites with Honey
Summer is heating up! We made it to July with a few thunderstorms behind us, fresh dandelion honey flowing, and a whole lot of pulled ticks. As we're getting ready to celebrate this 4th of July weekend, it's a great time to share our favorite honey recipes for drinking and grilling!
Perfect timing to pair juicy, in-season peaches and your favorite honey. Chill out with this refreshing, fizzy mocktail. For a stronger drink, try a splash of good quality rum.
Honey Peach Spritzer Cocktail
2 RIPE PEACHES
2 TBSP MINCED GINGER
1 CUP WATER
1 CUP RAW HONEY
2 LITERS CLUB SODA
15 FRESH MINT LEAVES
makes 8 drinks
1: In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup water and ginger and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of honey until dissolved. Let steep and cool for about 30 minutes, then strain the liquid through a sieve into a bowl. Discard the remaining ginger pieces.
2: Slice the ripe peaches and distribute among 8 tall glasses. Feel free to slightly muddle the peaches with a wooden spoon to release their sweet juices. Add ice as desired. Pour 2 tablespoons of the honey-ginger syrup into each glass and top with club soda. Stir and serve garnished with fresh mint leaves.
Sun's out, grill's out. A little honey-infused marinade adds a wonderfully sweet and earthy nuance to spare ribs, chicken, a big fillet of salmon, and just about any grill-worthy meats! Enjoy a crispy, caramelized coating with this savory marinade:
1/4 CUP HONEY
1/4 CUP WHISKEY
1/2 CUP SOY SAUCE
3 TABLESPOONS GRATED FRESH GINGER
2 TEASPOONS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER
1/2 TEASPOON NUTMEG
makes 1 cup marinade
Have a safe and happy Independence Day and party on!
