Ingredients for servings
8 fresh mint leaves
2.5 oz simple syrup see note
1 oz coconut rum see more
1.5 oz club soda
2 oz mango puree
1 lime, juiced
To make the mango puree, combine peeled + chopped, ripe mango in a food processor (or high speed blender) with the juice of 1 lime, and process until smooth (or at least almost smooth).
In the bottom of a glass, add simple syrup and the mint leaves. Muddle with a muddler or use the clean bottom of something blunt, like a screwdriver!
Add ice to the glass, and pour rum, syrup, mango puree, lime juice and club soda over top.
Mix with a long spoon or knife and serve with an additional sprig of mint.
Depending on the sweetness of your fruit, you may want to add more/less simple syrup, so I suggest tasting as you go.
Add more if you like your drinks strong. Malibu also makes a mango rum that you could combine with traditional coconut rum.
