Minnesota Basswood Honey Mojito

February 08, 2018

We've put a local spin on this refreshing mojito recipe using our signature, purely Minnesota-made honey—basswood! This award-winning honey comes from very fragrant blossoms of basswood (aka linden) trees that bloom in early July all over southwestern Minnesota. With its delicate minty and floral tones, basswood honey brightens up this classic cocktail and pairs oh so well with a good quality light rum.


2 oz light rum

2 T basswood honey

1 T fresh lime juice

1/2 C club soda

8-10 fresh mint leaves

1 C crushed ice


  1. Stir lime juice and honey together in a highball glass until mixed well. Add some crushed ice.
  2. Tear mint leaves in half, add to glass, and gently stir. Add rum, remaining ice, club soda, and gently stir again.
  3. Garnish with mint sprigs and a slice of lime and enjoy responsibly!
