Ina’s Mango Daiquiri

I like to fancy myself as an above average linguist and speller.

Fun fact: I won the spelling bee in 5th grade..

But certain words throw me every time – particularly algorithm and …….. daiquiri.

But truthfully, I don’t want to spell it, I want to drink it. So I did. And boy oh boy was it goooooooood. So good, in fact, the very next day I went to Costco and secured a case of mangoes. You know, for “just in case” purposes.

Like “just in case” I want to make one tonight. 🙂

Mango Daiquiri – adapted from Ina Garten

Remember – the quality of your drink depends on the quality of your ingredients. So take the time to make the sugar syrup, use real lime juice, and purchase good rum. I actually used a combination of aged white rum and coconut rum.

1 ripe mango, peeled, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tbs. sugar syrup
3/4 cup white rum
crushed icePlace the mango, lime juice, sugar syrup and rum in a blender and process until smooth. Add a cup of crushed ice and blend again until smooth. Serve immediately.Note: To make sugar syrup, heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves.
