Mango Mojito

The first long weekend of summer is almost here. Let’s celebrate with a refreshing cocktail!

Mojitos are one of my favorite summer drinks and I love playing with different flavors like Nectarine Mojitos and Strawberry Mojitos.

There have been loads of fresh mangos at my grocery store recently and what better fruit to make a tropical cocktail to welcome summer?

Mango Mojito

Muddled mango and fresh mint leaves mixed with white rum, mango rum, simple syrup, and club soda. It’s a sweet and delicious cocktail to help beat the summer heat.

Make sure to pick really ripe mangos and you will be rewarded with their phenomenally sweet and juicy flavor. Mangos should be soft to the touch, but not too soft. You want about the same amount of give as a ripe avocado. Color isn’t necessarily a good indication of ripeness because different varieties vary in their color. Ripe mangos should be stored in the refrigerator. If they still need to ripen a little, leave them at room temperature.

We are heading to Beaufort, SC for the weekend, dog and all. Darla went to the groomer yesterday to get a trim so she won’t roast if we take her to the beach. With all her black fur, she becomes a ball of fire after 2 minutes out in the summer sun. Her groomer recently started working out of her mother’s house after the store where she had worked closed. This was Darla’s first time there. A converted garage space has been turned into a grooming area. Kat, the groomer said that after she had finished drying Darla, she turned her back to her to start cleaning up. When she turned back around, Darla wasn’t there. She went into the house searching for Darla and found her in the family room making herself comfortable on the couch. Old girl needed some rest after all that grooming!

To make simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Let cool. Can be stored in refrigerator for a week or two.

  1. ive officially removed this site from ones I will use. Way too many mobile ads. It took three times as long to load and a pain to actually read. I understand sites need to generate money but the amount of ads you’re using is atrocious.

  2. hahaha I love that she went and sat on the couch!! That’s sooo something Emma would do!

    And I love anything mango flavored – these look perfect for the long weekend : )

  3. Ahhh – mangoes are amazing when ripe – I happened to get a couple of unripened ones and cut ito them instead of leaving them fora couple days on the counter – they were way too sour! Awesome idea for a mojito!

  4. Nothing says summer like a mojito — especially if it has vibrant, ripe mangos in in, as well. This looks like the perfect drink for a warm day. And I love the story about your pup making herself comfortable at the groomer’s house. Too cute — and I can’t say I blame her. I totally snuggle up on a comfy couch whenever given the chance!
