Summer is here and so is your demand for refreshing and cool drinks. To beat the heat, it is essential to keep yourself hydrated by indulging in light and cooling drinks and foods. Although day by day it is getting tougher to get out of the house with the sun shining brighter, you cannot miss out on hanging beside the pool or throwing a picnic or get-together.   

“All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.” As the saying is perfectly correct, you cannot always invest yourself in doing work. Whether you’re the man of the house, the lady who is the housemaker, or you're always studying, you’ll need some time to relax. Picnics, get-togethers or poolside parties are the perfect options, and they are incomplete without cocktails and mocktails. 

Make fruity base drinks and with that said, nothing can be better than the summer fruits. Talking about the summer fruit, mangoes cannot be missed. And how interesting it would be to indulge in the tropical flavour and vibrant colours of mango-based drinks. Arrange for both mango-based cocktails and mocktails and enjoy the event altogether.   

Take a look at the mango-based cocktails and mocktails:    

  • Mango Mojito   

This is a fruity twist on the traditional mojito, which is refreshing, vibrant and perfect for summer sipping. You can start making the mango mojito by muddling fresh mint leaves, lemon wedges, and mango chunks in a glass. Then add white rum, simple syrup, and ice to the glass and top it off with soda water. Gently stir to combine and garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of mango for a tropical finish.


  • Mango Margarita   

Enjoy the essence of tropical paradise with a mango margarita. It is a sweet, tangy, and irresistibly refreshing drink that will make your summer cool and hydrating. To make this, blend ripe mango chunks with tequila, triple sec, lemon juice, and ice until smooth. Rim the glass with salt for a salty and sweet kick and pour the mango margarita mixture into it. Garnish the drink with lemon wedges and a mango slice.    

  • Mango Daiquiri  

Beat the heat with the frosty mango daiquiri. You can easily make this tropical cocktail by blending fresh mango chunks, white rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and ice. Blend until smooth and pour it into chilled glasses. For extra flavour and visual appeal, garnish with a slice of mango.    

  • Mango Piña Colada  

You can make your summer parties perfect by indulging in the creamy and decadent mango piña colada. All you need to do is blend ripe mango chunks, coconut cream, white rum, pineapple juice, and ice. Blend everything together until smooth and creamy and then pour into glasses. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and a cherry for a fun and festive touch.    

  • Mango Mint Cooler  

For kids or those who prefer non-alcoholic options, try a mango-mint cooler that is perfect for quenching your thirst on a hot summer day. To make this, muddle fresh mango chunks, lime juice, and mint leaves until fragrant. Strain the mixture into a glass filled with ice and then fill it off with sparkling water or soda. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of lime for an extra burst of freshness.   

  • Mango Basil Smash   

Take your cocktail experience to the next level by incorporating mango basil smash into the party or get-together. In a cocktail shaker, muddle fresh mango chunks, basil leaves, lime juice, and simple syrup until thoroughly mixed together. Add gin, fill the shaker with ice and then shake vigorously. Strain the mixture into the glass, fill it with ice and garnish with a basil leaf and a slice of mango.    

  • Mango Sunrise Mocktail   

Tune in to the right pitch of the party by sipping the vibrant and refreshing mango sunrise mocktail. This colourful and alcohol-free drink is perfect for kids and adults who don’t like alcohol-based drinks. To prepare this, blend ripe mango chunks with orange juice and a splash of grenadine until smooth. Pour into a chilled glass and garnish with an orange slice and cherry.   

  • Mango Berry Blast  

The sweetness of mangoes and the tartness of berries create an excellent combination in the mango-berry blast mocktail.
