The Best Mangonada
If you love a good Mangonada, you’re going to love this recipe. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s known by several other names you might recognize it for like Mangoneada, Mangonanda or Chamango. Basically it’s a Mexican fruit drink that is made with Chamoy, fresh Mangos, Lime juice and Chili Powder or Tajin. Make it a Cocktail by adding Tequila and Triple Sec and garnish with a Tamarind candy straw and a slice of lime.
The main ingredient for this Mangonada recipe is obviously mango but do you know everything else that goes in and out of your drink? The secret to my recipe is sorbet. If you use Mango Sorbet in this drink you’re practically guaranteeing success. Next you need Chili powder or Tajin to “salt” the rim of your glass. Tajin is nice because it adds a salty and spicy lime taste instead of just heat. Chamoy sauce is added to the inside of the glass and creates a fiery red and orange tone to the Chamango with a hint of sour. So, add to you’re specific tastes, caution or confidence. Then, of course, garnish with a slice of lime and the Tamarind candy straw or lollipop, if you have one.
