Spring has sprung! Yesterday, I woke up to rain. By the time I left my office, it was 68F and sunny! So what did I do? I went for a run. IN SHORTS!!
And then I came home and made these Mango Mojito Mocktails because sometimes it’s fun to have a drink after work, and it doesn’t have to be alcoholic! I honestly think I enjoy a good mocktail just as much as, if not more than the real deal.
I’ve been experimenting with mocktails for a while. In the beginning, most of them used kombucha as a base, but after a while, you get tired of all of your drinks tasting like kombucha. So I started trying out different recipes. This mango mojito is a new one and is definitely a winner. It reminds me of summer, and with rain every day in our forecast, I’ll take what I can get.
Depending on the size of your mango, you can make 5-6 mocktails with this recipe. It’s super refreshing and flavorful and if you sit in a sunny window and close your eyes, you can pretend you’re somewhere tropical while you drink it.
