Mango Liqueur

A simple homemade alcoholic recipe for Mango lovers


Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 medium sized Mangoes
  • 750ml Dry Gin or Vodka

Procedure

  • Wash and clean your mangoes.
  • Chop it up into sizes that fit into a bottle.

I usually chop with skins for more flavour.

  • Use a clean sterile glass bottle.
  • Put the chopped mangoes in the bottle and pour your Gin or vodka into the bottle. Shake and cover.
  • Store the bottle in dark place for not less than 3 days to let the mango infuse. I usually let my fruit liqueur sit for 2weeks at least, for intensity of flavour.

  • Shake the bottle up regularly when it’s being stored

Serve with ice! Enjoy

Mango Lassi

#UnrepentantMangoAddict

The season came early this year and I’ve been enjoying every bit of it. A facebook friend even sent me the most precious delicious tasting mangoes all the way from Benue State. Oh i had a ball!

On the way back the Lagos from Ilorin, were my family and i spent our easter holiday, we stopped on the Ogbomoso highway to buy freshly harvested premium Ogbomoso mangoes.

I’m even brewing some Mango liqueur, which will be read in a few weeks and I’d be blogging about it.
