I came up with nearly the same recipe (exact proportions even!), though I used simple syrup instead of the honey syrup. (Named it the "Letoslav".) I'm going to bet that this version--with the honey--is better, though. Maybe using different honeys will prove interesting. Buckwheat, for example, seems promising. I used to get pine honey when I lived in France, but I've never seen it this side of the pond. Thanks for the recipe!
