Blueberry and honey gin mojitos with fresh mint


Zealandia Honey® Kānuka

The Kānuka honey is a fairly runny honey which will mix well with the soda water and crushed ice.

A note from Emma: Yes, I am well aware that a traditional mojito is made with white rum, but I’ve never been one to let tradition get in the way of a good recipe. If I were you, I’d experiment with this one, until you find your favourite combination. If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic version, simply omit the alcohol, or use seedlip garden 108. I know that many people like to bash the mint leaves into submission but I tend not to overprocess the ingredients, but rather churn them gently to release the delicate flavours - we’re making a cocktail, not a smoothie.


50ml dry gin

15ml lemon juice

15ml lime juice

1 tbsp Zealandia Honey® Kānuka

8-10 mint leaves (plus more to garnish)

8-10 blueberries (fresh or thawed)

Crushed ice

Soda water

Lemon twist (to garnish)


Place gin, lemon juice, lime juice, Zealandia Honey® Kānuka, mint leaves and blueberries in a tall glass. Churn with crushed ice. Top with more crushed ice and soda water, and garnish with some mint leaves and a lemon twist.
