Mango Martini. Wow.

Published

Why this drink is labeled a martini is a mystery to me. A martini is a drink made with gin and vermouth but this cocktail drink has neither. The ingredients are fresh mango, Triple Sec, vodka and lime juice. No gin. No vermouth.

But whatever. Even if it’s a case of mislabeling, it really doesn’t matter. It tastes fantastic.

Most mango martini recipes do not include sugar. Speedy made a sugarless mix, I found it weird-tasting, then he handed me another glass which, he said, had sugar in it. It tasted perfect.

If you like to try to make a mango martini, try and get fresh ripe mangoes. We had two which were supposed to go into a bowl of kani salad but no one had the time to make the salad and the mangoes had turned very, very ripe. Obvious solution? Puree and make drinks.

Mango martini. Wow.
