The Muses Soft Mojito Mead

With Litha comes the abundance of honey. And what better use for honey than mead? Traditional mead is a fermented drink made with spring water, honey, lemon and sometimes warm spices like nutmeg. Soft mead is non-alcoholic. This recipe is delicious on it's own and equally tasty with a shot or two of rum!  The amount of honey can be adjusted to your liking. If made as directed it is very sweet, but the addition of spirits tones that down a bit.
