  • Top with Club Soda: Add a splash of club soda to give the drink a refreshing fizz.

Honey Syrup

– Honey will not dissolve in cold water so you’ll need to heat in a pan and mix honey and water first to create a hot honey syrup.


  • Adjust the Heat: If you like it spicier, add a bit more hot honey. If you prefer it milder, reduce the amount of hot honey.
  • Use Fresh Ingredients: Fresh strawberries and lemon juice make a big difference in the taste of the cocktail.
  • Chill Your Glass: For an extra refreshing drink, chill your glass before serving.
