Mango cooler cocktail recipe

19.6.16

Here's one of the quickest recipes with homemade ingredients. Since it's mango season, my kitchen has been overloaded with the fruit. They've come from all over; Ratnagiri, Goa, the local markets and even our door to door mango guy, and the aroma in the kitchen is always very strong. So strong that one evening when I was thinking of making a cocktail, the only fruit I could think of using was a mango. Now I'm not a huge fan of mangoes and you'll never catch me eating one, unless of course it's raw and backed with spices and vinegar. But this was too good of a drink to pass. Not to mention easy as well. It technically is a mango mojito, but with a spicy element as well (because that's how I prefer my mango). The contrasts of the sweet mango and a hint of spice make it perfect chilled drink during the hot "almost" done summer. 

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet mango, chopped into tiny cubes or pureed mango
  • Fresh lime
  • Mint leaves
  • Rum (optional)
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Club soda
  • Shaker
  • Muddler

Step by step process

  • Pile up the shaker with the mango cubes/puree, a sprig of ripped mint leaves, a shot of rum, a drop (or two) of Tabasco and a hint of fresh lime. 
  • Muddle ingredients till the mango resembles a small mush.
  • Add ice cubes to the shaker and shake for a while.
  • Pour ingredients into two glasses.
  • Top it off with club soda
  • Garnish glasses with lime and mint.
