  • 1 tsp plain plain coconut yogurt (cocojune has no sugars added)
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz mandarin juice
  • 1 oz blood orange juice
  • ½ oz honey syrup (2 parts honey to 1 part hot water)

If you’d like alcohol, add 1-2 oz of your favorite dark rum.

How to make it: add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker half filled with ice; shake hard and strain into a tall chimney glass; garnish with a small bunch of mint and an orange wheel.

Spice Runner


  • 2 oz Spiced Rum
  • 8 oz of oat milk
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • Pinch of black pepper

Blueberry Beekeeper


  • 2 oz London Dry Gin
  • 6 blueberries
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • ½ oz lavender honey syrup*
  • *To a saucepan add 2 tsp of dried lavender flowers, ½ cup honey, ½ cup water and heat all ingredients until honey has dissolved. Remove from heat and let it steep for an hour. Strain out the flowers and it’s ready to use.
