That's how I always begin the beginners cooking classes at school.
Remeber in 6th grade, we learned something: "oil and water don't mix".
Water and crystals don't mix well either. So when mixing like things with unlike things, try to get them both closer to "like" things. Imagine watching the guy mixing cement. He makes a little mix with water and "dry" stuff before incorporating it all together.
Sugar crystals (and honey) would be the same. You'll be trying to mix for a while to get it incorporated.
Make a simple syrup mixture with sugar+h2o or honey+h20. Whatever floats your boat and then add that to the juice.
