This Mango Mojito is a non-alcoholic summer drink. You can also call this as Mango Lemonade.This is prepared from fresh ripe mango pulp and club soda. Mint and lime juice adds extra punch of refreshment to the drink.
I love mangoes like anything. I mean who doesn’t like mangoes. Mangoes are specialities of summer season. We get ripe mangoes only during summer season in India. That is only for 3 – 4 months you will get to see them in market abundantly.
There are different varieties in market. Market gets flooded with many varieties during this period. Out of all, I love Alphonso Mangoes a lot. These mangoes are juicy and comes with natural sweetness. Very rarely you will get some sour mangoes in these.
Apart from divine sweet taste, mango is full in many essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. This is a rich source of vitamin A.
To make quick summer drinks, I make simple syrup and refrigerate in airtight jar. Whenever I feel like making any juice or any such drinks just add simple syrup with other ingredients and no need to wait for anything.
Again this superb drink has flavor of mint and tangy lemon. You can add lime also to get a sharp flavor. While making such minty mojitos just remember to muddle mint 7 – 8 times. But if will muddle more then the drink might turn bitter.
