Recipe:

  • 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.
