Bahama Bob's Ti Thunderstorm

     While in St. Croix last week, I found that the mangoes were just beginning to ripen and I had the opportunity to enjoy a couple of them as a great munchy.  This got me thinking about using them in a cocktail.

     The Damoiseau 110 White Rhum is one of my favorite agricoles.   It has the big bold flavor that really brings a Ti Punch to life.  This is a variation on the Ti Punch, exchanging the lime for the lemon and adding the mango makes this a real winner.  Really fits what I was looking for to blend with the wonderful flavor of the mangoes.

  • 2 oz. Damoiseau Pure Cane Rhum 110
  • 3 pieces of Fresh Mango
  • Juice of ½ Lemon

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mango,  lemon juice, and simple syrup. add ice and rum and shake until fully chilled.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon wheel.
