I have also made a honey based (naturally fermented) soda off of this recipe, which was lovely as well.
Black Lagoon Hydromel
12 dried juniper berries
10 fresh bay leaves (cracked)
3 (small) sprigs of fresh rosemary
1.25-1.5 pounds honey
I made a tisane with herbs by boiling for about 10 minutes then letting it steep for about an hour and a quarter. At the beginning it was a nice, pale green, after steeping it was a beautiful cranberry red, and when I added the honey it turned grey—which is a shame, I would have rather that it stayed red.
