Mojitos really are a classic summer drink, and this recipe for Honey Mojitos makes the classic cocktail extra special. Hailing from Cuba, mojitos are cool, sweet, refreshing and well suited for summery days by the pool or vacations to white sandy beaches.

Fresh mint from the garden is a great addition for this drink! When picking mint, do so early in the day. The heat of the sun will actually reduce the essential oils in the mint lives and cut down on its flavors and aromas. You can also wash and dry your mint, and store in a covered glass of water in your fridge.

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. If you want to serve this drink to friends or family, triple the ingredients to make a pitcher or a few cocktails. We can guarantee you’ll be wanted more than just one! Fresh fruit is a great add in to your beverage, especially berries since they’re in season. Just float a few on top and add your garnish, and you’re ready to sit back and sip away.

Adapting our Honey Mojitos

You know, a recipe is not truly perfect until you’ve added your own touch to it. That’s why we encourage you to play with your food. Call to your inner chef to come out and play and change up this recipe. Here are some ideas:

  • Use your favorite mint to change the flavor of the drink 
  • Add a splash of orange juice
  • Add other fresh fruits (we think kiwi is great in this drink)
  • Mix it up with the type of honey! Blueberry or orange blossom will give your mojito a fruity flare
