Mango Tango

Day 204

Mango Tango
4 shots out of 5

I know what you are thinking......didn't you already do a Mango Tango.....something?  Well yes I did!  I had actually created a Mango Tango Daiquiri.......thinking I was pretty darn clever with that name too.  Then tonight I find a cocktail with the same name (sad face)......well at least this one isn't a daiquiri!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  This is a pretty darn good cocktail.  The mango flavor in the vodka really comes out in this cocktail.  I'm kind of surprised at how much I can taste the mango with all of the other flavors mixed inside this cocktail.  I'm not complaining, just surprised.  For the most part I enjoy a cocktail when more then one juice is mixed inside, it just adds a sort of tropical flavor to my cocktail that I really enjoy.  I found this recipe at the intoxicologist site.

Here is the recipe for a Mango Tango:

  • 1 oz mango vodka
  • 3/4 oz coconut rum
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz cranberry juice
In a short cocktail glass filled with ice, pour in all of the ingredients above and stir it up well.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to Thursday evening and one more day until the weekend!!
