Now that it’s spring once again, our local CSA is back in full force. We picked up our share last week, and were pleased to get a bunch of spring lemons and limes, as well as some very fragrant lavender and mint. The star of the share this week though was a jar of their local raw honey, which we’re both very excited about. Our allergies have both been acting up in the last couple weeks (ahhh spring!), so we’ll be eating a lot of this local honey to try and reorient our immune systems to the birds and the bees.  

If you’ve seen our Ginger Lemon-Limeade recipe, you know about my affinity for all things citrus, so this recipe combining lavender lemon and lime into a virgin mojito shouldn’t surprise you. This is a perfect spring beverage for a lovely afternoon enjoying the sunshine and the spring smells. Of course, you can feel free to add rum to this recipe for the real thing. 😉
