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.

Banana Mango Tango

Memorial Day is traditionally the kick-off for summer so with that we thought we should spend some time this weekend concocting some new summertime rum drinks.  We assessed the array of bottles in the liquor cabinet, went to the store and purchased a few more, then set out to create a new summertime favorite.

After a few less than stellar entries, we came up with what we felt was a winner that we’ll enjoy and  serve to some of our guests this summertime! We felt the banana and mango “tangoed” nicely together in this light and refreshing drink. So now, we introduce to you the Rum Therapy Banana Mango Tango!

Banana Mango Tango

 Banana Mango Tango
(serves 2)

3 oz. Cruzan Mango Rum
1/2 c. pineapple juice
1/4 peeled mango
1/2 large banana
1/2 oz. Cruzan Black Strap Rum

Blend the mango, banana, pineapple juice and Cruzan Mango Rum in a blender. Add approximately 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses. Float 1/4 oz. Cruzan Black Strap Rum on top of each drink and garnish with banana slices.

Unfortunately, we were unable to secure some Cruzan  Banana Rum in time for our summertime session. I would love to try a variation of this recipe by using 2 oz. Cruzan Mango Rum and 1 oz. Cruzan Banana Rum. We’ll give it a try and write a report once we can get our hands on a bottle! Hurray! It’s summertime!
