Mojito’s are just about the most refreshing drink to have on a hot summer’s day. The minty freshness combined with the ice and lime is perfection.
I like to change things up a little and flavour up my traditional mojito recipe and what better to get in a double win than to combine the deliciousness of a mojito with the sweet goodness of mangoes. Mangoes have to be my all-time favourite fruit and when it is in season I try to incorporate it as much as possible.
Let’s get mixing…
Start off with a traditional mojito mix, muddle together the mint, lime and sugar until fragrant. Add in the rum and some mango puree if you have it or if not mango juice will do. Stir well to combine. Fill your glass with crushed ice and top with lemonade.
The best part… garnish with a mango wedge and once you’ve downed your mojito, tuck into the rum infused mango. Just delicious!
