Ingredients

  • Half a ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 4-6 fresh mint leaves
  • 1oz simple syrup
  • 1oz lime juice (1 whole lime)
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • Club soda
  • Mint sprig and lime slice for garnish

Instructions: How to Make

  1. Muddle the Mango: In a glass, muddle the diced mango with the simple syrup and mint leaves. Muddling means squishing them together to mix their flavors.

  3. Mix and Chill: Add ice cubes and stir well.
  4. Top it Off: Fill the rest with club soda.
  5. Garnish: Add a sprig of mint and a lime slice on top.

Pro Tips

  • Use ripe mangoes for the best sweetness.
  • Don’t over-muddle the mint; gently press to release the flavors.
  • If it’s too sweet, add a bit more lime juice.

Frequently Asked Questions
