Are you ready for a mangolicious cocktail? Super sweet and juicy, mangos are more than a delicious fruit; they are also a superfood.
Studies show the fruit may help with a wide range of conditions, from obesity to poor digestion. The first plants were brought from India and the Philippines to Hawaii around 1824. Since then, they’ve been a favorite among locals and visitors.
We serve up fresh mango drinks at our pool bar every day. In this Thirsty Thursday edition, we’re sharing the aloha with this mangolicious margarita you can try at home.
If you want to enjoy fruit like a local, you gotta enjoy some lilikoi or passion fruit.
The sweet, yet tangy exotic fruit, will awaken your taste buds and is sure to delight.
It’s also packed with antioxidants, flavonoids, vitamin A, vitamin C, riboflavin, niacin, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, fiber, and protein.
So what are you waiting for? Bring some passion to your cup with our Lilikoi Daiquiri recipe.
- 1 ½ shots Naked Turtle Rum
- 1 shot lilikoi puree
- 2 oz. Sweet & Sour
- A dash of rock candy liquid sugar
- 2 scoops of ice
Combine all the ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth.
Pour into your favorite glass, garnish with a cherry and lime, sip and smile.
Don’t have lilikoi or passion fruit? Substitute the puree of your favorite fruit like strawberries or watermelon to create your own delicious daiquiri at home.
