Mango Daiquiri

With summer in full swing and mangoes and limes in abundance, it’s the perfect time to whip up this delicious cocktail.

It’s super-easy to make, and the only equipment you need is a blender or food processor (or a NutriBullet if you have one). I like to think there are health benefits to this summery cocktail, but regardless, drinking it is a highly pleasurable experience.

Ingredients (serves 4):
2 ripe mangoes, peeled and flesh roughly chopped
200ml white rum (such as Bacardi)
100ml freshly squeezed lime juice
100ml sugar syrup (see recipe below)
To garnish: sprigs of mint or lime wedges

Process the mango in a blender or food processor until pureed. Add the white rum, lime juice and sugar syrup and process until combined. Taste for sweetness, adding a little more sugar syrup if necessary.
Divide among 4 glasses and garnish with sprigs of mint or lime wedges.

For the sugar syrup:
Stir 1 cup of caster sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolved. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Allow to cool, then refrigerate.
Store leftover sugar syrup covered in the refrigerator – it will keep for around 2 weeks.
