Equipment

  • cocktail shaker
  • muddler (or wooden spoon)

  • measuring cup or shot glass
  • citrus juicer

Ingredients
  

  • 5-7 leaves Fresh Mint (plus extra for garnish)
  • 2 oz White Rum
  • 1 tbsp Raw Honey
  • 1 small fresh lime
  • 1/2 cup Seltzer (to taste)

    muddling mint for a honey mojito
  • In a separate small bowl combine raw honey with rum until well blended. Pour this mixture into your cocktail shaker on top of the mint leaves.
  • Squeeze the fresh lime juice into the shaker.
  • Add 5-6 ice cubes to your cocktail shaker, place the cover on, and shake until blended.
  • Pour contents of shaker (including mint and ice) into a highball glass or any glass of your choosing. Then top with seltzer to taste and add a mint leaf for garnish.

Notes

This recipe can be made virgin by skipping the rum.  Just mix the honey with 2oz water instead of rum and add a bit less seltzer.
