We love our whiskey, and with spring and summer on the horizon, we decided to create a recipe that embodies a liquor cabinet favorite with a seasonal vibe. Next time you get thirsty, make our honey mint whiskey mojito recipe!
Even the whiskey naysayers out there will love the caramel-honey flavor mixed with the brightness of fresh muddled mint and lime—and it’s so easy to do! The muddling process is the key component of a successfully-mixed whiskey mojito, so take your time when combining the honey, sugar, lime juice and mint.
Since the honey has a thick consistency, it’s prudent to shake, rattle and roll the contents of the cocktail shaker before straining it into glasses with fresh ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint and fresh lime for kicks and enjoy!
