This mojito loaded with fresh manjo gives a fun tropical twist on a classic drink.
Servings 2 glasses
- ½ cup mango puree (about 1 mango)
- 10 mint leaves
- 2 tablespoon lime juice (1 lime)
- 2 teaspoon honey
- 3 oz light rum
- 6-8 ice cubes, crushed
- ¾ cup club soda
- lime wedges, mango cubes and mint leaves for garnish
Add fresh mango to food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Set aside.
Place mint leaves, lime juice, honey and rum to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler to gently muddle the mint leaves, but don't muddle too much or you'll break up the leaves.
Add the mango puree and mix until combined. Fill two glasses ⅔ of the way full with the mango mixture and ice.
Top with club soda. Add extra mint leaves, mango cubes and lime for garnish.
- If you don't have fresh mango, frozen mango will work fine.
- Do not over muddle the mint or you will turn the taste bitter.
- Don't overdo it with the mint. A little goes a long way. 10 leaves is enough for 2 drinks.
- Use honey instead of simple syrup. It may not be traditional but takes less work and adds additional flavor.
- Use light rum when making the mojito. Gold or dark rum can muddy the flavor.
- Used crushed ice which will make the mojito colder quicker.
