Drink: #FancyDrinkFriday – Mango Pineapple Spritzer

mango-pineapple-spritzer

It happened, it’s finally Friday.  Did you think it wasn’t going to come this week?  I did.  I totally did.

It’s raining cats and dogs here so it’s fitting that I’m posting a cocktail made of fresh, tropical juice (can’t stop/won’t stop) which was enjoyed on a sweltering day on my patio.  That yellow color is almost enough to drive the rain away, don’t you think?

Hey, have a great weekend, ok?

Here’s the recipe.

Mango Pineapple Spritzer (serves 1)

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • A splash of Fresh mango pineapple juice*
  • Lime juice
  • Club soda
  • Basil for garnish

Method

  1. Fill a tumbler with ice.  Add vodka and stir well.  Add a splash of the mango pineapple juice–it’s kind of thick and very sweet so you really don’t need much!  Squeeze a wedge of lime in and top with club soda.  Stir well, and garnish with a sprig of basil.

*Mango Pineapple juice: Peel and slice a mango and feed it through your juicer.  Add 2 cups of pineapple, cubed.  Makes 8 ounces of juice–plenty for cocktails.  Alternative: freeze it in ice-pop molds!  Healthy popsicles!

Enjoy!
