You can enjoy this spicy mango beverage as is, or you can add a little splash of something to make a refreshing cocktail. Tequila would be a natural choice here, but a tropical rum wouldn’t be out of place either.
Spicy Mango Beverage
Total Time: 15 minutes
Vegan, Gluten-Free, Grain-free
2 large ripe mangoes
½ cup lime juice
16 ounces ginger beer
¼ cup flake sea salt, plain or smoked
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- To make the mango puree, peel ripe mango and remove pit. Place fruit in a blender and bend on high until smooth. This makes enough puree for approximately four beverages.
- To assemble, combine salt and cayenne pepper on a small plate. Dip the rim of four glasses in water then into the salt mixture.
Combine 1/3 cup mango puree, and 2 tablespoons lime juice in each prepared glass. Add ice and top off with ginger beer. Garnish with mint, lemon balm, or a jalapeno slice and serve.
