Author Notes: This recipe couldn't be easier, but the end result is delicious and highly versatile. Essentially a simple syrup that swaps honey for sugar and coffee for water, this can be stirred into a cocktail, used to sweeten your morning cold brew, spooned on homemade vanilla ice cream or drizzled over goat cheese stuffed figs. I always keep a mason jar tucked in the back of my refridgerator! —NYCBourbon
Makes: a little over a cup
cup honey (preferably dark, such as buckwheat, but any honey will do)
cup very strong coffee or espresso
- Combine ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a robust simmer, reducing until thickened. If not using immediately, pour into a mason jar or other container and allow to cool before storing in the fridge. It will keep more or less indefinitely.
