I wanted to experiment with rum to make cocktail time with friends much more than just a Cuba Libre. With all those flavored rums out there, I thought that trying something new with mango rum would be a good start. That’s how this Mango Mai Tai recipe was born!
Looking for a not overly sweet drink, I remember a Mai Tai we had on the last night of our recent Puerto Rico trip. It was refreshing, but I felt like it was missing something. Well, that something was the mango!
