I invented a cocktail! When we get to storytime I’ll explain where it’s name came from, but let’s go, first through, let’s go through how to make it.
2 Shots of Tequila
1 Shot Triple Sec
2 Shots Mango Puree
1 Shot Lime Juice
1 Shot Pineapple Juice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all ingredient and shake. Strain into a glass over ice.
So last week I ordered online some mango puree to make Vegan Richa’s Mango Chickpea Curry.(Very good, recommend the recipe and Richa’s recipes in general.) But I ordered wayyy too much of it. I do not intend to make a full catering portion of Mango Chickpea curry.
I immediately thought, “Let’s make a cocktail!”
So, wrapping up my work last Wednesday reasonably early (around 2 PM) I got right to experimenting.
I landed on the above recipe, which I realized I couldn’t quite call a margarita, so I went to facebook to ask for help naming it. There were a few really good ones, but it was Katie who called it a “More Amusing Than Mangoes” which is a line from Once On This Island which is my favorite musical that isn’t Les Mis, and that we produced together 10 years ago. (EWWWW)
When the gods are mocking our heroine, Timoune about her dreams of racing off in a car with a rich boy, they sing a whole song about hitting her on the head with a mango, and um, yeah, it makes sense with context, I promise, anyway, Katie suggested it and I immediately latched on to the idea.
So that’s what we’ve named the cocktail. I recommend them for when you’re feeling the socially distant blues and also just want to get so tequila drunk that you keep forgetting to eat the dinner you’ve been preparing for hours. (It was shrimp tacos!) (They were yummy!)
