Egmont Honey - Lime, Pineapple & Honey Mocktail
This drink is summer in a glass. Add a shot of vodka and it becomes a quick and easy, yet deliciously refreshing cocktail. The lime syrup can be stored in the fridge for a week or so and is wonderful drizzled over a freshly baked lemon cake or blueberry muffins or made into tea along with a slice or two of fresh ginger.
- Zest of 2 large limes
- ½ cup Egmont Honey
- ¼ cup hot water
- ¼ cup lime juice
- Ice to serve
- Lime wedges to serve
- Pineapple juice
- Soda water
Put the lime zest, honey, hot water and lime juice in a small heat-proof bowl and stir well until the honey has melted and the syrup is smooth. Pour into a sterile jar or bottle and leave to infuse overnight.
When ready to serve the drink put ice into glasses, add a wedge of lime, pour over 4 tablespoons of the lime and honey syrup and then top with equal measures of pineapple juice and soda water.
