  • 1 tbsp sugar syrup, adjust to taste
  • Lime, cut in half
  • Chilly, coriander and salt-rimmed margarita glass

  • Combine fresh mango pulp, rum and mango pickle in a shaker.
    Add the sugar syrup and a squeeze of lemon.

Note: To coat the glasses, fill a bowl with salt and any powdered spice you're using. Make sure the glass fits into the bowl. 

Holding the glass upside down, place the rim into the bowl and gently rotate the glass so that the outer edge is well-coated.

You may need to moisten the rim with some rum or any alcohol that is being used in the drink.

Shake off any excess salt or chilly powder, and straighten the glass.
