Highball cocktails are some of our favorite drinks to make because they’re so simple and easy to make, but they look fancy as can be. This particular highball cocktail uses honey as its sweetener, which gives it an extra bit of depth and character.

Tequila and honey are a match made in heaven. The sweetness of the honey balances out the strong flavor of tequila, making it a sweet but not cloying drink that’s perfect for sipping on the porch in the summertime. It’s also incredibly easy to make.

Tequila is a spirit that’s often associated with warm breezes and sandy beaches. But when you add honey to it, it becomes the perfect cocktail.

How to Make the Honey Highball Cocktail

This is a cocktail that’s sweet and light, with just enough kick to keep you feeling refreshed—and it won’t leave you feeling like a sugar-crazed maniac!

To make the Honey Highball:

  2. Add orange juice and integrate it with the other ingredients.
  3. Add ice and top with club soda. Garnish with an orange wedge.

What Kind of Honey Use in this Drink?

The beauty of the Honey Highball Cocktail is that it’s customizable.

You can use any type of honey you have in your pantry—unfiltered and raw, or one that’s already been filtered and heated.

What’s more, if you want to use agave syrup or molasses instead of honey, feel free! Just make sure to adjust the amount you use to compensate for the difference in sweetness between honey and whatever sweetener you choose.

We also don’t recommend using a flavored honey because it will add too much extra flavor to the cocktail. If you want to use a different kind of honey, go for it!

Tips from Our Experts to Make the Best Honey Highball Cocktail

First of all, use fresh lemon juice—it really makes a difference! Fresh squeezed lemon juice is full of essential nutrients that are lost when you squeeze out bottled lemon juice or buy pre-squeezed lemon juice from the grocery store.

Second, don’t be afraid to experiment with different types of tequila—our Altos Reposado is one of our favorites because it has complex flavors that pair well with honey. You can also try using a silver tequila or even just an aged tequila for something different!

Third, don’t use too much ice in your drink—the ice will dilute your drink and make it less sweet than you want it to be. If you’d like your drink even sweeter instead, try adding a splash of soda water.
