Why is it called a 'Honeymoon?'


In the 5th century, when calendar time was represented with moon cycles, newlywed couples drank mead during their first moon of marriage.


What is mead? It is honey wine, made with three natural ingredients - honey, water, and yeast. Your first thought might be of Game of Thrones or Vikings, and while mead is one of the most ancient forms of alcohol, it is also remarkably refined and diverse like wine. Mead can range from dry to sweet, from extremely mild to bold depending on the type of honey used. When fermented with fruit, mead is called 'melomel'; when fermented with herbs it is called 'metheglin' and when made with apples, it is called 'cyser'... but 'honey wine' is just fine.
