Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Place sliced berries and honey in a blender. Process until smooth. Pour mixture through a fine sieve to remove seeds. In a bowl, whisk together strawberry juice and apple cider. Stir in seltzer. Add gin if desired.
Pour into 4 small glasses. Add a few ice cubes.
