Mango Mule Recipe - Mocktail

Share this with your friends

Mango Mule

Mangoes are one of the most popular fruits in the world and rightly so - their sweet tropical flavour is simply exquisite. 

This mocktail uses the freshness of mint, the kick of ginger and the sweetness of mango to create the most fantastical tropical drink that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike (adults feel free to heat this up with some gin or vodka).

If you're acquainted with the traditional Moscow Mule then you will probably, at some point, have wondered where the name Mule came from. 

The Mango Mule is a fabulous (non-alcoholic) twist on an old recipe and although there doesn't seem to be a definitive answer as to why it is called a Mule, the popular opinion is that it got its name from the ginger beer which provides quite a kick. 

Preparation Time:
10 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 mango
  • 600ml ginger beer
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Garnish: mango slices, mint, lime
  • Crushed Ice

    Method

    Cut the mango into slices and pop it in a blender to create a mango puree.

    Put the mango puree into cocktail shaker with the ginger beer and juice of half a lime and stir together (if you shake it the fizz may go everywhere!)

    Pop some crushed ice into your glasses and top with the delicious mango mocktail. Garnish with some slices of mango, lime and mint.
