Guacamole Mead

Guacamole Mead

Guacamole Mead! No, we didn’t use actual Guacamole to make a Mead. When Barry Drake, a member of our VIP Club said he was sending us honey to make Guacamole Mead, I was dubious. He outright said I wouldn’t like it. On the surface? I’d have to agree! But hey, he went to the trouble of sending us honey, and a recipe. So, we made GUACAMOLE MEAD!

Avocado Honey isn’t actually made with Avocados. It is simply honey made with nectar harvested primarily from Avocado Blossoms. But does avocado honey taste like avocados? Nope! Avocado Honey is primarily sweet and has a similar taste to molasses or cane syrup. Certainly a darker look and taste than most other types of honey.

Thank you Barry Drake!
