I LOVE champagne mangoes. When they’re in season, I keep them on hand to eat as a snack or for breakfast with some strawberries. A few weeks ago, I puréed some champagne mangoes and fed them to my granddaughter for lunch. She loves them too!
Looking at the puréed mangoes, I got the idea of inventing a cocktail. My first attempt met with a highly positive response from my “cocktail tasters.” I thought I’d share my champagne mango recipe with Turley Blawg readers—in case they’re looking for a special drink to serve to their mothers on Mother’s Day.
Champagne Mango Martini
2 jiggers vodka
2 jiggers champagne mango purée
1 jigger triple sec
1 jigger freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 jigger simple syrup
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a strawberry. Tell your mothers to sit back, relax, sip, and enjoy!
