FRIDAY COCKTAIL - MANGO ALEXANDERS

So sophisticated like a Brandy Alexander but kicked up a notch (who's says that????) with mango vodka.



If you cannot find mango vodka, simply make your own. In a jar combine 2 cups of good vodka with 2 cups of diced mango. Cover and refrigerate overnight up to four days. Strain the mixture and discard the mangoes. Easy enough!



This can be done with other fruits to make flavored vodkas. If you have't noticed the flavored vodka world is expanding fast to include, root beer, bubblegum and ice tea falvors....hmmmmm???



Ingredients:

3/4 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

3 cups unsweetened coconut milk

1/2 cup fresh lime juice plus 2 tsp lime zest for garnish

dash f fresh nutmeg for garnish

2 cups mango vodka



In a small pan heat water and sugar until sugar dissolves. Let cool for about 20 minutes.



In a pitcher combine coconut milk, lime juice and syrup. Pour in the vodka!!!! Fill the pitcher with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into martini glasses and sprinkle with lime zest and nutmeg.



MANGO VODKA....Who Knew!?

ENJOY!
