Egmont Honey - Orange, Honey & Rosemary Syrup

Using honey instead of sugar adds depth to the bold orange and rosemary that makes up this syrup. The final product blushes a beautiful orange and makes the most delicious spring drink simply poured over ice and topped up with soda water. It is also delicious make into a hot tea, poured over porridge, fruit in a fruit crumble or over ice cream.
