Whether it’s a chilly morning, hot afternoon or a balmy evening, there’s nothing like a refreshing drink to perk one up. Having said that, there’s also nothing better than a mug of warm milk or hot chocolate to help one settle in for the night...
If your drink of choice is tea, water, coffee or milk, or if you’re a juicer, we have the perfect enhancer to your drink. Honey. Natural honey’s goodness and appetizing taste is the perfect addition to any drink – an elixir to the body and a delightful and a flavourful drink family and friends will be sipping for more!
Here are some tips to inspire you to make your drink luxurious:
- Lace the glassware with honey; twirl or drip honey down the inside of the glass to decorate the sides. The delicate taste of the honey will infuse the drink or milkshake.
- Chill the drink with honey-water ice cubes. A creative touch is to add a drop of honey into a slightly frozen ice cube, think ‘honey droplets’ in the ice melts.
- Mix or lightly stir in the honey into the drink.
Fans of our Forest and Eucalyptus honey shared their secret ‘ask-for-more’ beverages with us and we’d like to pass them on to you. Drink on!
- Crush two stalks of fresh lemongrass, or more if you like it stronger;
- Add the lemongrass to a pot of water;
- Bring the water (with the lemon grass in it) to a boil and simmer in medium/low heat for about 20 minutes;
- Once the lemongrass fragrant became noticeable, remove the pot from the heat;
- Leave to cool till hot/warm. Note: Boiling liquid or very hot liquid will ‘kill’ the honey’s good enzymes.
- Serve the lemongrass tea in tea cups or mugs,
- Add a teaspoon of Forest honey, or sweetness to personal taste, to each cup.
A cold and thirst-quenching alternative: Let lemongrass cool completely, pour into a water jug, stir in the Forest honey to taste and add ice cubes. Or, pretty up the drink with honey-drop ice cubes (see tips above).
Freshest mint tea
- Place two handful of crushed fresh mint (leaves and stem) into a tea pot,
- Add boiling water;
- Let infuse for 10 minutes;
- Serve the mint tea in tea cups or mugs,
- Add a half a teaspoon of Forest honey, or sweetness to personal taste, to each cup. Option: Add a splash of lemon juice or add a wedge of lime to zesty up the tea.
