Feature – Hudson & Lee Honey Simple Syrup

Hudson & Lee Honey Simple SyrupWe are so pleased to work with Hudson & Lee Honey Simple Syrup this month!

When we discovered that there was a simple syrup made with honey instead of sugar, we had to find out more. Hudson & Lee Honey Simple Syrup is a fabulous drink and cocktail sweetener that not only sweetens, but adds a rich note of honey to any beverage. Additionally, you can feel good about using an all natural sweetener full of the nutrients found in honey.

They have some great cocktail recipes on their website, so we thought we’d pick our favorites, and maybe come up with one of our own. Check out the recipes and videos below.
