Minty Mango - MBP
Sig from Live to Eat is hosting Monthly Blog Patrol this month with the perfect theme for the blazing summer which has started in right earnest here.......Mixed Drinks! MBP is about trying out recipes from fellow bloggers and is the brainchild of Coffee of The Spice Cafe
The deadline came and went and luckily got an extension, so that warm afternoon with no one at home -(such bliss sometimes!!) - I decided to indulge in a chilled Mojito. I briefly thought it should be a mocktail since it was early afternoon and I didn't even have company as an excuse to pull out the booze - but then it was a verry brief thought! LOL!
And since I had the first mangoes of the season ripening in my basket, it had to be something with Mango! I love the great food and reviews on Erin's Kitchen - and I remembered a post for the Monday Mixology series.
It was called Minty Citrus - seemed perfect to recreate into the Mango cocktail I craved...So I muddled fresh mango pieces with lots of mint and lime slices and then strained and mixed it with 60ml of Smirnoff Citrus, crushed ice and lime flavoured soda - Whee!
This is one refreshing drink and I am sure to try this with the oranges in the original recipe.
