Mango Mojito with Mango Orange Saffron Chilli Sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon of Chef Wayne's Mango Orange Saffron Chilli Sauce
- 3 limes
- 1 very ripe large mango, diced
- ½ x 28g pack of mint, leaves picked
- 180ml coconut rum
- Crushed ice
- Chilled soda water, to top up
- Extra mango, mint, and lime, for garnish (optional)
Start by squeezing the juice from 2 limes. In a blender or food processor, combine the lime juice with Chef Wayne's Mango Orange Saffron Chilli Sauce and diced mango. Blend until you have a smooth purée.
Take a shaker and lightly muddle the mint leaves with simple syrup. This will help release the mint's aromatic flavors. If you don't have a shaker, you can use a sturdy glass or a muddler.
Add the coconut rum, lime juice, and mango purée to the shaker. Drop in some ice to cool the mixture. Give it a brief shake to combine the flavors and chill the drink. Alternatively, if you prefer a more traditional presentation, strain the mixture into a highball glass over fresh ice.
To enhance the refreshing quality of the drink, top it off with chilled soda water. The amount can vary depending on your preference, but a gentle pour should do the trick.
For an optional touch of elegance, garnish your Mango Mojito with extra mango slices, mint sprigs, and lime wheels. These additions not only add visual appeal but can also enhance the overall taste and presentation of the drink.
Enjoy your Mango Mojito, infused with the delightful flavors of mango, lime, and Chef Wayne's Mango Orange Saffron Chilli Sauce. It's a tropical and refreshing twist on the classic Mojito, perfect for warm weather and relaxing moments.
