- 1 oz. Mango Rum
- 1 oz. Lillet Blanc
- ¼ cup finely-chopped fresh mango
- Splash of dry or sweet sparkling rosé, to taste
- Sprig of mint for garnish.
Combine mango, Lillet Blanc, and mango rum in a glass with ice.
Top with a splash of the sparkling rosé, garnish with mint.
Great for a party too! To adapt for a punch bowl:
- 1 ½ cups Mango rum
- 1 ½ cups Lillet Blanc
- 4 cups finely-chopped mango
- Dry or sweet sparkling rosé to taste
Combine ingredients; add the ice last to avoid the sparkling rosé bubbling and overflowing. Garnish with mint.
Lillet is a French wine-based aperitif from Podensac which is available in both red and white. It is a blend of 85 percent Bordeaux region wines and 15 percent citrus macerated liqueurs, resulting in a pleasantly fruity but not oversweet aperitif wine. It can be found next to the Port in the wine aisle of your grocery or wine store.
