Enjoy the bounty of mango season

It’s mango season in Florida. Fresh mangos are only fifty cents to a dollar each in the grocery store right now. They’re free if you have a tree in your backyard. Making the most of this mango bounty, I came up with two fresh and easy frozen cocktails to get us through this hot, humid summer weather. Enjoy!

Frozen Mango Daiquiri (will serve 3-4)

4 oz. dark rum (Myer’s Original Dark)

1/2 oz. Florida honey

Add all ingredients into a blender and pulse on puree until well blended. Pour into a glass and garnish with a mango wedge. You can also drizzle honey on top if you like.
