Mango Mojito

Today we had a lovely ripe mango sitting on the countertop and so I thought I’d try it out in a mojito recipe. There were numerous mango mojito recipes on the web, so we tried a few, changed one up a little and came up with a winner!

We assembled the ingredients and began mixing, nearly drooling at the sweet aroma of the mango. Be sure you choose a ripe mango for this recipe for smooth consistency and the best taste. You may be able to substitute mango nectar for the actual mango, but the real fruit tasted delicious in this drink. We used Cruzan Mango Rum for the added sweetness and another shot of  mango taste, but a white rum can also be used. Makes a great summertime treat!


Mango Mojito
(makes 1)

2 oz. white rum or Cruzan Mango Rum (we used Cruzan Mango Rum)
3 – 4 oz. club soda
1 small very ripe mango, skin removed
1/2 lime
5 mint leaves

Blend the mango and rum in a blender and set aside. Muddle the mint leaves and juice of 1/2 lime. Add the club soda and rum/mango mixture. Add a bit more club soda if needed so that the mixture is not too thick. Gently stir. Pour over ice in a tall glass and stir again before serving. Garnish with mint.
