There is no strict order words so any order is technically right. However, inversion like that can only be found in poetry and it is my much more natural to make question just by intonation.

It's liquid when fresh, later it becomes crystallized. Anyway, don't know about English-speaking world, but nobody in Ukraine drinks soup or honey. It's only drinking when you put it in a cup and can drink it without help of any other tool

Living in the US - and having lived in western Ukraine - no one here drinks honey, either. You eat it, regardless of how liquid it is.
