Honey mix

In a medium saucepan, bring together equal parts (by volume) honey and water over very low heat just until combined. Very little heat is required; don't cook the honey. Bottle it in olive oil bottles and add a small amount of silver rum to help stabilize and prevent crystallization.

1/2 oz passion fruit syrup

1/2 oz honey mix

1/2 oz silver Puerto Rican rum

1 oz gold Jamaican rum
