With summer in full swing, I am loving the chance to enjoy the longer evenings and enjoy al fresco dining. The other day, my friend Deanna made a great mango rum spritzer for summer at one of our World Cup viewing parties. We have a group of us in a pool for the different teams, so the viewing parties are fun and competitive.
There is a big game on today between the USA and Germany. Now of course I want the USA to win, not only because it is my country, but I also have USA in the soccer pool. I will not be able to have one of these today while watching the game since I will be at work when it is on, but I just might be celebrating with one today after work.
What I love about this drink is it is Mango flavored. If you have been on the island a while, you know how much I love mango.
This drink is delightfully mango. It is a rum spritzer, but we wanted to give it a fun name so we dubbed it a Mango Jango. If you like mango, you will love it.
All you need for this tasty drink is three simple ingredients and some ice.
Mango Jango – Mang Rum Spritzer
2 oz Bacardi Mango Fusion Rum
4 oz Orange Peach Mango Juice
splash Sparkling Water
Fill each glass with ice. Add rum and mango juice. Add a splash of sparkling water. Stir a bit. You can top with a piece of fruit if you like.
This tasty beverage is fruity, without being heavy. A perfectly light fruity cocktail for a World Cup party, barbecue or any summer event. Let me know if you try one. Cheers!
Do you love mango as much as I do?
I also have a great mango sangria recipe – just click the photo below.
