Mango Madness Mojito

mojitos3_wm

This drink just sounds fun! Fun to say, fun to look at, fun to drink! It definitely delivers.

From the moment you lift the glass to take your first sip, you’re hit by the amazing smells of mint & mango. It is a smooth drink that packs a punch. If you like a Mojito I hope you’ll jazz your next one up & try this Mango Madness version.

This is the way I like to make mine, but as with everything, taste is subjective. If you like yours a little stronger – add some more rum. If you like it a little less sweet, go lighter on the mango nectar. Check the ethnic section of your grocery to find the Mango Nectar (they have a wonderful selection of nectars. So, get creative with other flavors).

    I have only had a traditional mojito, but am always open to other flavors! I bet a pomegranate one would be pretty tasty. :)
