With spring in the air I felt it was time to make some seasonal cocktails and this pineapple mango mojito was first on my list. When we cooked up the idea of Seasonal Potluck we thought that every Friday should be cocktail recipe day. I know today is only Wednesday, but I’m on vacation so I figured why the heck not?
Its so easy to incorporate seasonal fruits into cocktail making….just puree them! I have a stick blender that I use religiously, but you could use a food processor or regular blender to liquify those bad boys. Once you have a fruit puree, just add booze! Champagne would be excellent with fresh fruit puree as would vodka, but for our purposes today I went for rum.
I have a mint plant growing in my backyard that is HUGE, so I snipped some mint, muddled it with a little sugar, topped it fruit, rum and soda water, and had myself a delicious seasonal cocktail!
Pineapple Mango Mojito
1/2 t sugar
5-6 mint leaves
1 t pineapple puree
1 t mango puree
3 oz rum
Muddle the sugar and mint together in a shaker. Add in pineapple puree, mango puree and rum. Shake until well combined. Pour into a glass then top with soda water and enjoy!

This sorbet is delicious. Seriously. Go make it. Seriously. You’ll love it! It’s such an easy recipe for a summertime treat. I couldn’t believe how creamy it whipped up too! We are big ice cream fans in our house, but this sorbet was so creamy that we didn’t even miss the dairy…or the added calories. This is a healthy summertime treat you can feel good about enjoying. I think this would also be good if you froze it in popsicle molds too after mixing for a little while.
