Can you believe it’s just a few days until Cinco De Mayo? I can’t, but I’m super excited because it’s the day before my birthday. So I’m going to be having a treat with Agave in The Raw. Agave In The Raw is an organic low glycemic sweetener you can use in baking or making beverages sweeter. I like to use Agave in the Raw in my coffee and in my cocktails. Because we have partnered with Agave in the Raw for the week, we decided to share a recipe a day for Cinco De Mayo. Today’s cocktail treat is a Mango Mojito with Agave In The Raw.
Mango Mojito with Agave In The Raw Recipe
6 – 8 mint leaves (plus an additional sprig for garnish)
1 ½ ounces light rum
2 teaspoons Agave In The Raw®
2 tablespoons mango nectar
1/8 of a lime
4 ounces club soda
Place the mint leaves and rum in an old-fashioned glass and set aside for 5 minutes. Using a muddler or the back of a tablespoon, bruise the mint leaves with the rum.
Add the Agave In The Raw® and mango nectar to the rum. Squeeze the lime into the glass, then add the squeezed wedge. Add 4 ice cubes. Pour in the soda and stir just enough to blend. Garnish with the mint sprig and serve.
