Mango Madness…

Dreaming about Mexico and my daily dose of mango. 

I love my 4pm cocktail hour, lounging and sipping a fresh Mango Daiquiri on the beach.

If a beach isn’t close by in the city, relax and turn on an ocean soundtrack. If you are in the country or the ‘burbs recline on your porch/patio or if you have a backyard, get out there!

Let’s get our Mango Daiquiri Party Started:

Prep the mangoes.

Choose 1-2 large ripe and juicy mangoes. When buying mangoes, select the bright orange colored ones. Avoid mangoes that have black and soft spots. The mango should be a little soft and not very firm. If it is very firm, it is not yet ripe and will be lacking sweetness.

Wash them and peel using a sharp knife, cut the flesh away from the pit and discard the pit.

You need 1½ cups of peeled and sliced mangoes for each cocktail.

Throw the mango into a blender.

Use 4 fl oz white rum. Top shelf rum is not necessary.

Add a ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Add a ¼ cup sugar syrup. The mango may be sweet enough to eliminate the sugar. If not make the sugar syrup by using 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar.

  • Add water in the pan.
  • Add sugar and give the pan a swirl.
  • Let the sugar dissolve in water completely.
  • Swirl a few times in between but do not stir.
  • Remove the pan from heat and let the syrup cool.
  • Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to a month.

Blend all the ingredients together until thick and frothy.

  1. Sharing with my son, as his GF loves mangos!
    After fighting the good fight in DC it is the least she deserves!

  2. Sounds wonderful, dear one! I intend to try it when I’m back at the Cape for the first since my sweetheart passed
    there. His last wish was to go up there; best decision
    we could have made…
