    Mango, Mint & Rum Spritzer

    This cocktail is refreshingly simple and easy on the waistline, but I bet you didn’t know that mangos are said to prevent cancer, lower cholesterol, fight acne, and even increase your sex drive. This delicious fruit is loaded with vitamins A and E, which are crucial to maintaining eyesight and a healthy alkaline balance. The fresh mint aids in digestion and beautifully balances the rum and mango. Let’s toast to your health!


    Ingredients
    For the Lynn’s Lemonade:
    1
    gallon
    noncarbonated spring water, warmed slightly
    1/2
    cup
    to 1 cup agave nectar (to taste)
    6
    lemons
    For the Mango & Mint Puree:
    2
    cups
    mango chunks
    2/3
    cup
    fresh chopped mint
    1/8
    cup
    agave nectar
    1
    ounce
    Lynn’s Lemonade
    For the spritzer:
    2
    ounces
    golden rum
    2
    ounces
    Mango & Mint Puree
    1 - 2
    dash

    *
    club soda, chilled
    1
    lime wheel for garnish
    1
    sprig
    mint for garnish
    Directions
    Make the Lynn's Lemonade: Pour the spring water into a large glass pitcher, making sure to leave enough room for the lemons and nectar. The warmth of the water helps the agave nectar to dissolve thoroughly. You can also place the pitcher in a sunny spot for an hour or so to get the water to the right temperature for blending the ingredients. Add the agave nectar to taste, and stir until it dissolves. Roll the lemons on a hard surface to release the juice from the fruit pulp. Slice them in half, and strain the juice using a mini strainer or citrus press. Add the juice to the pitcher and stir well. Chill before serving. Makes 1 gallon.
    Make the Mango Mint puree: Combine the mango, mint, agave nectar, and lemonade in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a plastic squeeze bottle, and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Makes 2 cups.
    Make the spritzer: Fill a Collins glass with ice. Add the rum, puree, and bitters, then top with club soda. Garnish with a lime wheel or twist, mint sprig, and an optional mango spear, and serve with a straw.
