What’s in a mango martini?
Mango Martini is a spin on flavored vodka martini inspired by this tropical fruit. As you know, a vodka martini is only related to the classic dry martini. Vodka martinis became popular in the 1990s and are mainly defined as drinks in which vodka is added to a martini glass. For mango spins, you can use fresh or frozen fruit or juice. The ingredients in a mango martini are:
- Mango puree or mango juice
- Cointreau or Triple Sec
- lime juice
Making Mango Puree Using Fresh Fruit
Have a ripe fresh mango on hand? Then you’ll want to make homemade mango puree for this drink! Quick and easy to make in a blender. If you are making more than one drink, increase the quantity appropriately. You will need about 2 mangoes to make 1 cup of puree. The operation is as follows:
Cut fruit into cubes and mix with splashes of water until puree forms. Go to our Mango Puree recipe.
Sweeten to taste. All varieties of mangoes have different flavors, and the sweetness varies depending on the ripeness of the fruit. Add a little sugar or syrup to taste. Remember, you’ll also add sweetness to the drink itself.
Frozen fruit also works. Thaw frozen mangoes before mixing!
The same can be achieved with mango juice!
There are two types of mango juice you can find when shopping: mango nectar and mango juice. Either work for this recipe! Here are the differences:
Mango nectar is a beverage made from mango pulp and juice. It’s usually 50% juice or less. Mango nectar has a delicate sweetness: although it is sweetened, the taste is not too sweet.
Mango juice is made from 100% fruit juice. The taste is sweet and purer than nectar.
