Friday night’s at our house, are usually spent outside with the neighbors. Grilling, hangin’ out, and enjoying a cocktail or two. I saw this recipe on Pinterest, and knew I had to try it. I’m not big into sweet drinks, but I have to say this was pretty good, healthy and it looked nice too 🙂
Coconut Mango Mojito (makes 2 drinks)
1 ripe mango
5-6 mint leaves
4 oz coconut rum
4 oz Sprite zero or club soda
-For mango puree-
Peel and chop mango and juice one lime into cup or blender. Mix with immersion blender or blend until smooth.
Place 2 or 3 mint leaves in the bottom of a glass and muddle to release oils (if you like sweeter drinks, here is where you could add 1/2 tsp of sugar, a pack of Splenda, brown or raw sugar even, and muddle with the mint leaves)
Fill cup with ice, and add half of the mango puree, 2 oz coconut rum and 2 oz sprite zero. Mix well.
Garnish with a couple of mint leaves and paper umbrella 😛 Enjoy outside, on the beach, or in a hammock 😉
MAN, that makes me want a hammock… one day 🙂
