This Boat Drink Uses Mango As The Main Mix Ingredient
Lakes, boats, beaches and BBQs – it’s all a part of the good ‘ol summertime.
And while beer is generally considered the primary adult beverage to have at these and other summer activities and events, it is also a prime time to have rum drinks. Or, as Jimmy Buffett and his legion of Parrotheads prefer to call them, boat drinks.
With that in mind, Ron Barceló, which makes outstanding rums in the Dominican Republic, has created a new refreshing tropical cocktail. It’s called Just the Two of Us and it uses mango as its primary mixer ingredient.
Used with Ron Barceló Imperial, is ingredients include mango puree, lime juice and smoked paprika syrup to create a sweet and zesty libation with a nice summertime kick.
The recipe is below.
