Here's to a Rummy Summer

This drink is a perfect treat for all mango lovers.

METHOD:

FOR THE MINT SIMPLE SYRUP:
• Take a small saucepan and set it over medium-high heat. Add sugar and water and bring to a low boil. Simmer till the sugar is completely dissolved.
• Once the sugar dissolves completely, add in the mint leaves. Simmer for another 4-5 minutes but don’t stir.
• Pour the simple syrup into a glass jar through a mesh strainer to strain the leaves.
• Allow the syrup to cool and refrigerate for 30 minutes until completely cooled.

FOR THE MANGO MOJITO:
• Once your mint syrup has cooled down completely, take a large pitcher and pour it in.
• Add in the mango puree and stir.
• Add in the rum and lime juice and again stir.
• When you’re ready to serve, add in the club soda and give it a good mix to ensure everything has melded completely.
• Pour into ice-filled glasses. You can garnish it with lime wedges and fresh mint sprigs.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:
• For making a mocktail version, just omit the rum and double the amount of club soda.
• Make sure to use fresh mango purée only. If unavailable, you can make use of canned purée or mango juice.
