Hoppy Lemon-Honey Simple Syrup
February’s recipe features the Herb of the Year, Hops. From Elly H., a new and unique way to enjoy this herb.
Try this for a bittersweet zesty cocktail, ape’ritif, or with mineral water.
For extra zing, add a pinch of freshly grated ginger.
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup honey
2 Tbsp dried hops
1 tsp fresh lemon zest
Combine water and honey over low heat until well mixed. Add hops
and lemon zest. Remove from heat, stir, cover, and steeep 30 minutes.
Test; if you prefer a stronger flavor, steep longer.
