How to make a Mango Gin cocktail?

You can shake up this velvety cocktail in a mason jar or cocktail shaker in no time at all. All you need for the base is gin and mango, our two hero ingredients, so choose a top-quality gin like O’ndina Gin for a solid base (it’s got lovely notes of lemon and orange!) and a good quality unsweetened mango juice or puree. To balance it all out, add freshly squeezed lemon juice and top up of soda water for a little fizz.

Make it yours – our tips and tricks to put your own stamp on this Mango Gin cocktail

There’s many ways to make this cocktail your own for extra enjoyment. Check out our tips and tricks below:

  • Use fresh mango. Although mangoes are imported all-year round, they’re at their absolute best during the warm summer months of May through September. When they’re in season locally, choose a fresh and juicy mango and muddle it into this cocktail instead of juice to really double down on the tropical flavour. You may want to add the lemon juice carefully as the ultra-sweet fresh mango may not need as much to balance the flavours.
  • Adjust the sweetness. Got a sweet tooth? Use less lemon juice and add half a chopped banana to the muddle for a natural sweet boost. If you prefer this mix less sugary, add a dash of bitters to tone down the sweetness.
  • Bring the island breeze. For an extra tropical hit, split the soda water amount with a splash of coconut water.
  • Up the zest. Lime is the perfect partner for juicy mango, so swap the lemon juice for freshly squeezed lime to add some extra zing.
  • Pitcher love. This cocktail is so easy to make in bulk when you’re hosting a large group. Simply combine all the ingredients, apart from the ice and soda water, in a large pitcher and keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Pour into individual glasses and top up with the soda and garnishes or add the soda straight to the jug to let guests serve themselves. Don’t forget to add lots of ice! A garnish station next to the pitcher would look totally cute: lay the table with plenty of cute tumblers, colourful paper straws and umbrellas.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Most fruits pair wonderfully with the herby and complex botanicals of gin. Choose popular combinations with berry varieties such as raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries for a sublime drink. Many gins have citrus notes, so adding a squeeze of lime, lemon, grapefruit or orange is sure to raise the stakes. Tropical twists are also welcomed in gin cocktails, so give mango, pineapple and watermelon a go. For a more delicate combo, try lychee and rose. When using fruit in gin cocktails, fresh herbs make great garnishes to really bring the flavours together. Grab your fave bottle of top-quality gin and get experimenting!

Gin is quintessentially known to be enjoyed with tonic in a classic G&T cocktail, however, be sure to try it with vermouth in a Martini. Other mixers that complement gin include soda water and flavoured seltzers, as well as sparkling wine for a gin spritz vibe. In terms of juices, flavours like orange, lime, grapefruit and pineapple pair well with gin.
