Since this evening is the Charleston Absolut Mango Bartender Challenge and "Mango Mixoff", I thought I would include a tropical libation of the mango variety. Absolut Mango is very potent (in my humble opinion). It has a strong nose of juicy mango probably due to the fact that it is made exclusively of natural ingredients and has no added sugar. As a result, the best way to initially try the Absolut Mango is neat. However, if you are looking for a little more kicked up fun I would try an Absolut Mango Mojito!

Absolut Mango Mojito:

  • 3 ounces of Absolut Mango
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 1/2 ounces of simple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of very fine sugar
  • Soda water
  • Mint leaves

Muddle mint leaves with sugar in a long drink glass and add crushed ice. Build the vodka, lime juice and syrup over the ice and stir. Top up with soda water and more ice. Garnish with mint leaves and bits of mango.
