Celebrating Honey Month, Take 2

Honey is one of nature’s wonders that makes the world a much better place. I would like to start this post by thanking the bees, without which honey would not exist. It’s a food that I use in my tea, with my breakfast, and, of course, in my cocktails. So, as part two of our National Honey Month observance I would like to present you with a few of my favorite honey cocktails.
