The Ultimate Mango Mojito (virgin).

While I did share the video demo for this refreshing virgin Mango Mojito a few months back (during the hot summer), there’s been a lot of requests for the printable version of the recipe. Though this version is ‘virgin’ (safe for kids and those who don’t mess with the rum), you can always add a cup (or more) or your favorite rum and enjoy this as a big-people beverage. If you cannot source a ripe mango, try the frozen section of your grocery store for frozen mango pieces.

You’ll Need…

1 large ripe mango
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
1 L carbonated water
1/4 cup water (to puree mango)
8-10 mint leave mint leaves
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
2 limes
1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
orange peel (optional)

Important! If using the orange peel as I mentioned in the list above, try to get an organic orange as the regular ones (North American) in grocery stores may have pesticides and/or covered in a wax-like coating.

Peel and cut the mango into chunks and along with the grated ginger, sugar and water, puree in your blender.

In a large bowl (or the jug you’ll be serving this in) place the mint leaves, cut one of the limes into pieces and place in there as well.. along with pieces of orange peel (zest).  Then using a pestle as in my case (I don’t have a bar tending kit) press down to bruise everything so they release their natural oils and juices. Now squeeze in the other lime and top with the mango puree.

All you have to do now is add the carbonated water (chilled) and stir to combine.

Place a couple mint leaves, a slice or two of orange zest (twist to release the fragrant oils), some crushed ice and top with the virgin mango mojito to serve.
