Summertime is the time for cool and
refreshing cocktails. A friend brought
me a couple of ripe mangoes from his trees, now what to do with them. I’ve only had marginal success using fresh
mangoes in cocktails, there usually seems like there is something missing. This time I decided to make mango syrup with
the fruit and try putting it into a cocktail.
This has turned out to be the ticket.
The syrup combines the flavor of the mango with the sugar and the lime
juice to make an extremely flavorful mix.
Now the flavors of the spirit and the
other ingredients are not being overwhelmed by the mango and the flavors of all
the ingredients are coming through. This
is a wonderful way to unwind in the backyard on these Indian summer afternoons.
