How to Make Skinny Margarita Recipe

Skinny Margarita is a "thing". It's a lower-calorie alternative to the well-loved sugary counterpart that many of us gave up drinking in our youth.

Did you just say mojito?

When you make one with honey, it makes all the difference in the flavor. This one we made with a craft spectacular club soda that we found at our local grocer and boy does it have a kick! Muddle in a few fresh blueberries, and you’ve achieved perfection. This mojito recipe is timed well for the warmer weather that’s setting in.

Honey Mojitos

Our recipe for Honey Mojitos is sweet thanks to the Eastern Shore Honey that we used to replace refined sugar. Blackberry is great for drinks and would make the perfect sweetener for this recipe.

Do you salsa?

Summer Salsa is a lovely sweet and savory happy hour treat. If you are familiar with the canning process, you can make a big pot of this and can it to enjoy all winter long. One of my favorite things to do on the Eastern Shore is visiting my friend Joyce, foraging in her garden, and creating a new recipe. This one was straightforward and so delicious because everything that we made with our hands came from the earth, (the chips, however, were store-bought.)

This is a perfect summer salsa to whip together when the garden is overlfowing and you want to make a dish that can last all winter long (if you preserve/can)

Eastern Shore Honey-Marinated Fish Tacos with Slaw! We use honey twice in this recipe – once in our fish marinade and once in our slaw. We recommend a light, mild honey to give the dish a balanced sweetness. Avocado Honey plays well with the cilantro and lime, while our Spring Honey imparts a nice bright flavor.

These Fish Tacos are the best.
