1. Host a Backyard Picnic

Gather your friends and family for a delightful backyard picnic. Prepare a spread of fresh fruits, artisanal cheeses, and delicious Mango Honey Chicken Kabobs. Nothing says summer quite like sunshine, great food, and good company!

2. Go on a Hiking Adventure

Explore the great outdoors by hitting the trails and enjoying a scenic hike. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a beginner, there's a trail for everyone. Pack some energizing snacks, like Honey Luxe Granola, for a quick energy boost to keep you fueled along the way.

3. Create a Summer Reading Nook

Transform a cozy corner of your home or garden into a summer reading nook. Fill it with plush cushions, fairy lights, and a stack of books you’ve been meaning to read. Sip on a refreshing glass of Mānuka honey lemonade as you dive into your favorite novels.


4. Plan a Beach Day

Spend a day at the beach building sandcastles, swimming, and soaking up the sun. Pack a picnic with sandwiches, fresh fruits, and a big jug of Mānuka honey-infused iced tea for a refreshing, healthful treat!

5. Have a DIY Spa Day

Pamper yourself with a spa day at home. Indulge in a relaxing bath with aromatic bath salts, and give your skin a summer glow with a DIY honey facial or sugar scrub.

Tip: Use Mānuka honey. Its antibacterial and moisturizing properties will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and radiant!


6. Make Popsicles

Cool down on a hot day with homemade popsicles. Blend together fresh cream, yogurt, and Mānuka Honey for a delicious and creamy treat. Add in your favorite mix-ins like chocolate chips or fresh fruit.

7. Take a Road Trip

Embark on a road trip to explore new places. Plan your route to include charming small towns, scenic viewpoints, and local farmers' markets. Stock up on local produce and enjoy a picnic with honey-sweetened treats along the way.

8. Grow Your Own Herb Garden

Start a small herb garden in your backyard or even on your windowsill. Fresh herbs are easy to grow and can elevate any dish. Plus, you get to support the bees by providing the resources they need to thrive, as they rely on the nectar from flowers and herbs for food and hive health.


9. Outdoor Movie Night

Set up an outdoor movie night with a projector and a big screen. Lay out blankets and pillows, and prepare some tasty snacks. Popcorn drizzled with a mixture of melted butter and Mānuka honey makes for a perfect sweet-and-salty treat.

10. Sip Summer Cocktails

Mix up some refreshing summer cocktails with a honey twist. You can recreate a healthier version of your favorite cocktail recipe by substituting the sugar for a dash of honey. Cheers to natural sweetness and added health benefits!

Summer is the perfect time to embrace new adventures, soak up the sun, and create lasting memories. Whether you’re exploring the outdoors, indulging in delicious treats, or simply enjoying time with loved ones, Taylor Pass Honey is here to sweeten every moment. Happy summer!
