      I'm starting to feel like your biggest fan. I'm sharing this recipe hub on my Facebook wall because I've been talking about it and want others to have the recipe. My husband and I are going to have a date night on our boat this evening where we'll be sipping this beverage made with Bombay Sapphire gin--runny honey and all!

      Denisemai, yes I am just describing honey in general. Runny honey is only a term :)

      This sounds good. I'd like to try it. Is Runny Honey a product brand or are you describing the condition of the honey? (I've never heard of the product.) Alberta is beautiful. I went there a couple of years ago and had a great time. Can you tell me why the rivers look silver? Just wondering. Good recipe!
