Mango Mojito (no sugar)

My favorite lately has to be the Mango Mojito 86 the sugar. I know, "No sugar?". Yes, no sugar, no cane, no simple syrup, no splenda, no equal. The flavored rum is sweet enough. This is an easy recipe anyone can make. It requires no fat washing or flames. I tend to like to make things easy for the masses to make or to make for the masses.

Mango Mojito

2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
6-10 fresh mint leaves ( I prefer pineapple mint)
2 oz Mango rum ( I use Cruzan)
splash of soda water

In a pint glass add lime juice and mint and muddle gently. Fill with ice and add rum. Cap and shake till your hand is frozen. You need to make 2 oz of water melt off ice. Pour in tall slender Collins glass if available. and splash with soda. Garnish with a lime slice and mint sprig.

Lemango Variable (for those needing more tasks)

1/2 inch slice of lemongrass
6-10 pineapple mint sprigs
2 oz mango rum
Dash of angostura bitters
crushed ice

In a pint glass muddle lemongrass vigorously and mint leaves and muddle gently again. Add cubed ice, bitters, and rum. Cap and shake till 2 oz of water are added from ice. Strain into a tall Collins glass filled 3/4 with crushed ice. Tiny mango slice and switch of lemongrass leaf for garnish.
