A Mango Martini with a touch of orange is a great bright and refreshing cocktail to make for friends or just a simple drink at the end of a long day!I don’t know about you, but I love a good martini, especially a martini on the sweeter side. Here is the recipe I use to make an Orange Mango Martini which is a slightly sweeter martini. This is perfect for when mangoes are in season! A perfectly ripe mango is a beautiful thing, and this recipe showcases that beautifully!
Orange Mango Martini Recipe
Before you get started, you need the right supplies. Of course, the ingredients below are a must, but every amateur bartender needs the tools for their job. A great Cocktail Shaker is a must. Not only will it make mixing drinks like this mango martini easier, but it looks great on your home bar. If you want to impress, this is the way to do it. There are tons of great options out there, but I love the ShikShook Cocktail Shaker set that comes with all the tools you need to impress and mix amazing drinks.
Orange Mango Martini Ingredients:
1 oz Slow Gin
1 slice mango
1 slice orange
Splash of Mango Juice
Orange Mango Martini Directions:
Place some ice in a large cup, then pour in the Gin and Vermouth. Stir with a spoon about 1 minute or use your newly purchased Cocktail Shaker if you prefer. This depends on your preference for a shaken or stirred martini.
Pour mixture into your martini glasses,
but strain ice out. Pour just a splash of mango juice in the glass. Garnish with an orange slice and a mango slice.
If you want to have an orange sugar rim like in the photos you take corn syrup and place on the edges. Then put a few drops of orange food coloring in the sugar and dip the glasses into the colored sugar. If you want to get fancy when stocking your home bar, you can purchase some Orange Cocktail Sugar
to have on hand.
There are so many occasions when a great cocktail is a must. Making a beautiful, bright colored Orange Mango Martini is going to be the highlight of your dinner parties or just a favorite way for you to end the day. Mix this up and impress your guests with a delightful cocktail with bright flavors everyone loves!
Random mango story: While we were living in Honduras (in a two room hooch) we ate mangos everyday. They grow all over the country. At one point we ended up traveling across the country on a chicken bus. Chicken buses got their name from foreign travelers because their cargo sometimes includes chickens or other live animals hitching a ride from town to town. During the stops locals would be standing out side the buses selling bags of fruit including mangos. You could throw down money and they would use a large stick to deliver them to you through your window!

With a knife, cut the cinnamon sticks lengthwise into thinner strips.
