From the book
Mangos are a celebrated fruit in the Caribbean – there are annual mango festivals on many of the islands – and they are a main ingredient in lots of traditional dishes, sweet or savoury. The fruits are juicy, sweet and larger than any mangos we get over here. I made this sumptuous mango cocktail on the beach in Saint Lucia after sundown – a perfect end to the day. You can either make the purée by blending fresh mangos in a blender until smooth or you can buy it ready-prepared.
|Juice of 1 lime|
|1–2 tbsp||sugar syrup (depending on how sweet you like it!)|
|A large handful||ice|
|Fresh mango slices, to garnish|
|Mint sprigs, to garnish|
Combine the mango purée, lime juice, sugar syrup, coconut rum and ice in a blender and blitz until smooth.
Pour into tall glasses and garnish each with a mango slice and a sprig of fresh mint.
