Mango Mixer Drink Sans Alcohol

When it comes to alcoholic drinks I'll be upfront with you readers... I'm an idiot. Yep, it's true. I'm basically a non-drinker so I'm clueless when it comes to mixed drinks. I am not anti-drinking and I will drink alcohol... it just can't taste like alcohol. This is why I prefer a virgin daiquiri or even just orange juice, hold the vodka. LOL.

The only thing that doesn't fall into this heading is wine. I like to sip a nice glass of wine on the deck on a warm summer evening, on the beach with the ocean lapping at the sand or in the case of last weekend; at a cabin in the woods by the lake. It's very relaxing! But mixed drinks? I'm a babe in the woods.

I have tried a couple of the Rose's brand drink mixers and as long as they are mixed in fruity drink, I tend to like them. Sometimes I like them even better when I leave the alcohol out though. While I used an image of the mojito mix for this recipe, it's actually for one of my favorite fruits in the world; the Mango.

I know people hate recipes without amounts... I do too sometimes - but this is one of those things where you just have to go by your own personal taste. Mix some of the mixer with a mango, some frozen cubes, a little zest from the lime and ice. Blend in a blender and then stir in a little bit of the lime juice to give it a kick. Add more or less of any of the ingredients based on your own tastes. It's like a mango fruit smoothie.
