DIY Honey-Infused Bourbon Whiskey

Do you like deliciously sweet, tasty alcohol? Yes. You do. Shut up. It wasn't really a question.

Today I'm going to teach you how to infuse bourbon whiskey with honey. This isn't hard. You don't need to grab your dangerpants. Leave them in the closet.

For this recipe you need three things: delicious runny honey, slightly higher-than-bottom-shelf bourbon whiskey, and a mason jar (Or whatever. I don't care what you keep your booze in. Who am I to judge?)

So the ratio to this is basically 4:1.You can fuck with the ratio depending on how sweet and honey-like you want your alcohol to be. The way I prepare it, it will basically be like delicious alcoholic honey that can be poured into hot tea or taken straight the way I would imagine I would take it if I were an outlaw in the old west trying to prove my masculinity to others except mine has tasty honey in it and theirs didn't.


  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup honey

Microwave your honey if it isn't already super runny. The Honeyman puts some runny honey out there on the shelf, people. FYI.

Then you pour it all into that jar. And shake it up. And put it in your fridge. Then shake it again later when you're tired and keep opening the fridge hoping something will miraculously appear there to eat since the last time you opened the door but it hasn't. Do this for at least 24 hours before you drink it. The longer it sits, the better.

When you're done, it should look like this. It looks great, doesn't it? It does. It looks like delicious honey collected by the drunkest bees in all the land.
