Mixologist Sonali Mullick's Mango Chilly Masti is just the drink you'd want on a summer evening.
Mango Chilly Masti
- 45 ml dark rum
- 25 ml aamras or mango puree
- ½ a green chilly
- 10 ml sugar syrup
- 100 gm ice
- ½ scoop mango ice cream
- Pinch chilly powder
- Mint sprig
- Combine the dark rum, mango puree, sugar syrup in a shaker.
- Muddle or mash the green chilly using a mortar and pestle and add it into the shaker.
Shake well and strain through a sieve before pouring into a coupe glass filled halfway through with ice.
Garnish with ½ scoop of mango ice cream, chilly powder and a mint sprig.
Note: For a vegan version of this cocktail, skip the ice cream and use a mango popsicle.
If on a diabetic diet use a sugar-free mango popsicle to garnish the drink instead of mango ice cream. And instead of sugar syrup opt for honey or stevia powder. Each brand of stevia has its own stevia for sugar substitution ratio provided on its packing.
