So, remember these Watermelon Mojitos ? You all loved them, so I knew I needed to come back with another fruity mojito recipe for this summer. We’ve had so many mangoes this spring, so these mango mojitos were a complete no brainer. I wanted you to get a nice hint of the mango without it being a super thick smoothie, so the club soda plays an important role in making this drink. Let’s talk about this flavour, though friends. Undeniably delicious.
The mango of course, not only adds sweetness, but this stunningly beautiful colour to these Mango Mojitos. The mint flavour is pretty subtle, but adds a delicious flavour profile also. The lime of course, balances it all out. Even though the mangoes are sweet, because of the amount of club soda I added, you’ll need some simple syrup to bring back up the sweetness of this drink. What you get is a beautiful, tasty and totally easy cocktail drink for the summer.
Yes, easy. You literally blend up most of this drink in your blender, stir in the rum and simple syrup, and then pour it over a glass filled with ice when serving. I love serving it with a little lime wedge and some mint on top for gorgeous garnish presentation and even more of a tiny kick. If you’re feeling SPICY, rubbing the rim of the glass with cayenne pepper is SO divine too. It’s something we tried in Mexico and absolutely loved it. Enjoy friends!
Mango Mojitos - In Your Blender!
- 20 mint leaves
- 2 cups cubed mangos
- 1 1/2 cups seltzer water/club soda/sparkling water*
- 1/4 cup (56.6g/2 oz.) fresh lime juice
- 1 cup (250ml/8 oz.) white rum
- 3/4 cup to 1 cup simple syrup*
Add your mango cubes and mint to a food processor or high speed blender until smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute in the food processor or in the blender until a smooth puree forms. Add in the club soda and lime juice and mix again, for up to 10 seconds to combine.
Pour the mango mixture into a large pitcher and add in the white rum. Stir vigorously for about 15-30 seconds to incorporate.
Taste and add the appropriate amount of simple syrup based on the sweetness of your mangoes, up to 1 cup simple syrup, and stir again.
Pour into an ice filled glass and enjoy!
This recipe is vegan and gluten free.
I've used both a Jamaican Appleton White Rum and a Brazilian White Rum, so any white rum should be fine!
The best kind of mangoes to use are the ones without stringiness. Julie mangoes would be your best bet. If you're not sure which is a Julie mango, ask your local grocer/vendor and they'll guide you in the right direction.
You can make the simple syrup by boiling 1 cup sugar with 1 cup water until completely liquid, stirring often. Cool it down, then measure it out! This makes a bit more than 1 cup simple syrup, so use as much or as little of it as you want depending on the sweetness of your mangoes.
*seltzer water/club soda/sparkling water - you can use any of these but sparkling water is the most natural (and expensive) of them all, then seltzer water, then club soda which has a few additives.
HOW TO STORE:
You can store this Mojito recipe in the pitcher in the fridge for several days.
Feel free to add more or less rum!
