Mango daiquiri

That looks like a misplaced pineapple.  I ordered mango daiquiri, and I didn't know what that pineapple was up to clinging on the glass.  But it did taste mango daiquiri; the restaurant was filled to the brim, everybody's busy with their holiday food so I did not make a fuss and just proceeded to confirm this was exactly what I pointed on the menu to the waiter.

This recipe is by Annette Forrest on the December 2005 issue of Super Food Ideas, posted under Classic Christmas by
  • 6 mangoes, peeled, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups white rum
  • 1 1/2 cups vodka
  • 6 lemons, juiced
  • 1 cup sugar syrup (see note)
  • 6 cups crushed ice 
Combine half the mango, half the rum, half the vodka, 3/4 cup lemon juice and 1/2 cup sugar syrup in a blender. Blend until smooth, Add half the crushed ice. Blend until just combined. Pout into 6 coctail glasses and serve immediately.

Repeat using remaining ingredients.


  1. my kind of drink!
    they probably ran out of fresh mango, so they used pineapple.:p

  2. would love to give that a try!
