Mango Mojito Spritzer
Looking for Fourth of July cocktails?! You’re in the right place, girlfriend. It’s a blessing and a curse that a previous homeowner decided to plant mint in our backyard. This very invasive patch is half-near impossible to stave off, but has provided the freshest, most aromatic herbs for many a mojito. Gosh darn, good for sumthin’.
It’s quite possibly one of the best scents I’ve experienced. I wish this was a scratch-and-sniff article so you could feel what I’m putting down. #thefuture
This little pretty packs a punch. 👊🏻 The tartness of the lime coupled with the sweetness of the mango topped off with sparkling, bubble water marry into a zesty, refreshing libation greeting summer days. In a nutshell, this effervescent elixir has FUN written all over it.
Requiring few tools, and few ingredients, toss this easy cocktail recipe together for a last-minute get together or pack it up for a picnic. You’ll be seeing nothing but swooning eyes. I mean, girl, look at that colorrrr.
I’ll see you at the bar in two shakes of a lamb’s tail. Ya dig? 😏
Mango Mojito Spritzer
Makes one cocktail
10 fresh mint leaves
5 frozen mango chunks, slightly defrosted
2 oz. lime juice
1 tsp. confectioner’s sugar
2 oz. silver rum
6-8 oz. seltzer
1 mint sprig
Coarsely tear mint leaves. In a cocktail shaker, add mint, confectioner’s sugar and mango chunks. Muddle until mango becomes a fine pulp. Add lime juice, rum and lightly muddle some more.
Place ice in a lowball glass. Using a strainer, pour your mixture over ice. Shake, shake, shake to retain every last drop. Top off with seltzer, slice of lime, sprig of mint, and a cocktail pick with two mango chunks. Serve straightaway!
That looks delicious. I will need to try it before the heat kills my mint for the season. I think I have everything but the lime. I had a great patch of mint, and my husband prepped the bed without asking me, and somehow managed to get rid of all of my mint!! He obviously has superpowers, because most people can’t get rid of it if they want to. And I’ve had trouble establishing a good patch again. Darn global climate change. Thanks for the recipe!
