Just a little re-treaded Christmas Cheer

Carole's Chatter: Mango Cocktail

I'm up at the crack of dawn having realised that the dish I had planned for you today is not ready.  It's now been marinating for 2 days instead of one which probably isn't such a bad thing!

So I looked back into my archives for something just a little bit Christmassy to share and came up with this Mango Cocktail.

If this doesn't feel Christmassy to you, just remember that where I live Christmas falls in high summer so tropical fruit is appropriate.

This lovely smooth cocktail is simple to make:

Instead of putting ice in it I just refrigerated all the ingredients overnight so they were nice and cool

For 4 serves just blend together:

180ml white rum (or less if you prefer less of a kick)
1 teaspoon or a bit more of lemon juice
425g can of mango pieces in juice
250ml of milk
2 tablespoons of caster sugar – I used ½ teaspoon of stevia powder instead

Pour into your festive glasses and enjoy.

Merry Christmas


  1. Raising my glass to you. Cheers! I love mango !! Happy Christmas, Carole!

  2. Count me in! I love mango. I hope you post the dish that's marinating, I can't wait!

  3. Since we went to Cuba this year, anything with rum seems plenty festive to me! This cocktail sounds wonderful

  4. Oh wow! Looks awesome. I love anything mango!

  5. Yum! Mangos are the perfect summer ingredient and in abundance this time of year :)
