Mike’s Hot Honey Citrus Cocktail

I’m basically married to a mixologist.  In all seriousness, my hubby can make a cocktail to celebrate any holiday, big event or even a casual get together.  This is just one of his amazing qualities.

For the holidays we have whipped up this delicious cocktail using Mike’s Hot Honey.  It is delicious served cold but could be yummy warm as well. 

We have recently discovered Mike’s Hot Honey.  This is not your normal honey.  It is so versatile you will be adding it to wings, pizza, cheese boards, salads, and cocktails!  Mike’s Hot Honey is carried at lots of groceries.  Of course you can find it on Amazon as well.  Go get yourself a bottle!  Grab a couple extra for hostess gifts or stocking stuffers.
