The amount of honey added to the glass must be <370mL. Is it 5mL, 15mL, etc.?

I was thinking the same thing, surely the recipe isn't to add ALL that honey to the cocktail?

I think its because you make a chilli infused honey with a jar of honey and a chilli before, thus the ingredient list. Its a bit misleading though. I'll look at changing this up to make it more obvious
