Nothing says summer like a cold drink with a little umbrella.  In my house, you know it is summer when the mango martinis are being whipped up in the blender.  As many friends have asked for this recipe, I thought it was worth sharing.  Enjoy!

 Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 inch long piece of fresh ginger
  • 2 mangoes (ripe)
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 21 ice cubes
  • lime (optional)

1. Combine sugar, water and ginger in small sauce pan.  Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.  Simmer 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and cover.  Let steep for 1 hour.  Strain ginger syrup and cool.

2. Puree mangoes in a blender.  Pour into measuring cup and return 3/4 cup of puree to blender.  Add 1/2 cup of the ginger syrup, vodka and ice to blender.  Blend until smooth.

3.  Pour into glass and garnish with lime and tiny umbrella.  Enjoy!
