Mango Monsoon Cocktail

Hi Everyone! HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙂 In honor of it being the end of the week and in the spirit of letting loose, I have come up with a MANGO juice concoction (thank you all for voting on my facebook page for what you preferred as the juice base of this cocktail recipe (the battle was between pomegranate juice and mango juice – and MANGO won!) Fret not, my lovely pomegranate fans, I promise you a pom recipe NEXT Friday 🙂

If any of you are a little bit like me, sometimes I just want a light, refreshing cocktail that isn’t loaded with tons of alcohol that stings my throat. What a novel idea – a TASTY cocktail? 🙂 Let it be known that I had an absolute BLAST testing this recipe out in my kitchen 😉

I am sure those of you that try this will LOVE it – perfect to serve along spicy food (the sweetness of the mango and peach schnapps goes perfectly with something that has a kick!) or you can make a big jar of this and serve it at an outdoor party when it’s warm outside. I would describe this drink as crisp, light, refreshing, and DELISH!

The name, by the way, is a little ode to the beautiful, luscious mangoes that come out of lovely Bombay (that is known for its monsoon season, among other things ;-)). If you’ve ever had the real, Alphonso Mangoes (Aapus Aam) from Ratnagiri/Bombay area, you know what I am talking about 😉

Enjoy 🙂


Yield: 1 amazing cocktail

Ingredients

1 cup Mango juice, chilled (any Mango nectar/juice works!)
1/2 shot of Peach Scnhapps
1 shot of Coconut Rum (something like Malibu’s or Pirate’s would work just fine)
a splash of sparkling water, Champagne, or Prosecco, chilled

Directions

Mix mango juice, peach schnapps, and coconut rum in a shaker. Shake with ice. Serve in a champagne glass, top up with your choice of bubbly. If desired, garnish with lime wedge (optional).
