Description

This Mango Mule is a sweet summery twist on the classic Moscow Mule. Infused with the tropical taste of mango, warming ginger beer and zingy lime.

The default recipe makes one cocktail.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 80g / 3oz fresh mango flesh (excluding skin and stone) (see note 1)
  • 15ml / 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 50ml / 1.7fl oz vodka (see note 2)
  • 150ml / 5fl oz ginger beer (see note 3)
  • Ice
  • mint leaves, to garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place the mango, lime juice and vodka in a blender or food processor and blitz until you have a smooth and even liquid. 
  2. Tip the mango mixture into a glass half filled with ice (a copper mug is ideal, but not compulsory) and then add the vodka and ginger beer. Stir everything together to mix.
  3. Crown the glass with more ice to fill.

Notes

  1. While using fresh mango adds a real juicy and fresh flavour to the drink, you can substitute for mango juice, although you may need to use more of it to get a similar flavour (therefore diluting the cocktail a little). Mango syrup also works, but is a lot sweeter which will affect the final result. 
  2. In England and Wales, a standard shot is 25ml, therefore this cocktail calls for a double shot. In Scotland and Northern Ireland, a standard shot is 35ml. In the US a standard pour is 1.5 fl oz which is equivalent to 45ml. Adjust as you prefer.
  3. Make sure to use ginger beer rather than ginger ale, as it is stronger and more firey and therefore has a significant effect on the flavour of the cocktail
