Yesterday we achieved a personal goal which I can't discuss, that's why it's PERSONAL! But, I will say it was reason to celebrate. We chose to celebrate with a newly concocted drink, called an Italian Mango Mimosa. In my mind anything having to do with Italy or somewhere tropical like Hawaii, is the place to be. And, if you can't be there, at least you can bring those flavors into your kitchen.
I made some homemade lemon liqueur a while back and I figured it would go perfect in this. It did! If you need to celebrate or just whisk your brain into tropical vacation mode, try this. It's an adult smoothie with a twist!
Italian Mango Mimosa
1 cup orange juice
1/2 large or 1 small mango, peeled and cut from pit
Place in a blender and puree. Add about 1 cup of ice and chop/blend. Add 3/4 - 1 cup of limoncello. Blend and serve. Simple, simple, simple! Garnish with fresh mint sprig or umbrella and be prepared to dream!
