This three-ingredient Honeysuckle Tequila Cocktail is as refreshing as it is simple to prepare. It goes especially well with Mexican food. And, definitely stands on its own.

The honey syrup can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. It has many uses similar to simple syrup. Keep in mind that different varieties of honey will have nuanced flavors. So, pick a good, local variety and adjust for sweetness. Leftover honey syrup is delicious in coffee, tea, and lemonade as well as mixed drinks.
