Dreaming about what to sip this summer? Shake up some cool, soothing, and spicy Fresh Mango Mojito and rejuvenate your day with its tropical taste. Here is how to make it at home.
About This Recipe
Mango Mojito is a refreshing Cuban Style Cocktail, where mango puree is mixed with club soda, lemon juice mint leaves, sugar, white rum, and ice cubes.
All you need is some fresh mangoes and a few handy ingredients that are mostly already available in the kitchen. And it gets ready in just 10 minutes! Yes, I am not joking.
The earthiness of rum and sweetness of mangoes creates a perfect cocktail to sip by the pool or at your next house party.
I have used White Rum here, as I like the combination of it with mangoes, but you can use Vodka too.
This drink is vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and nut-free, so make it without any hesitation this Summer.
To make this Spicy Mango Flavored Mojito, you will need,
Mango Puree – I have added fresh mango puree to the cocktail, but you can definitely use the canned puree as well. If you are making this in Summers, do buy fresh mangoes from the market and use the puree of the same.
Rum – White Rum is the alcohol added to Mojito. I have used Bacardi White Rum to make this. You can use any white rum that you have.
Ice Cubes and Soda – You will also need lots of ice cubes to serve this drink. Club soda is needed to fill up the glass.
Other Ingredients – A few fresh mint leaves, granulated sugar, lemon juice, and chopped fresh Jalapeno. The spicy kick from the jalapeños is to die for. If you don’t have Jalapeno, you can use green chilies too.
You can also add pineapple juice, strawberry puree, or even peach puree to this Mojito for a taste change.
Step By Step Recipe
Add mint leaves and sugar in a cocktail shaker.
Muddle until mint leaves are macerated.
Add lemon juice, jalapeño, mango puree and white rum and mix well.
Fill a glass with ice cubes.
Add the mango mix in the glass.
Top with club soda. Garnish with mint leaves and lemon slices. Serve immediately.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can make this delicious drink in a blender. Just add in mangoes, some mint leaves, sugar, lemon juice, jalapeno, white rum in the blender and make a smooth puree.
Next, add in the ice cubes in the glass, pour the mango mixture and top it with club soda and mint leaves and it’s ready.
You can also make a non-alcoholic Mango Mojito, by just omitting the white rum from the recipe, and there you have a refreshing summer mocktail.
This Mango drink stays good in the refrigerator for several days. Just add it in the pitcher, cover it, and store.
But if you ask me, I make it fresh the day I feel like drinking it, as it tastes the best. I just make a pitcher of Non-Alcoholic Mango Mojito and keep drinking the entire day whenever I feel thirsty.
If making it for a party, you can make it 4 to 5 hours before your guests arrive and store in the fridge, so that you have your drinks ready at the time of the party.
