After one sip, you’ll already be mixing another one, and another one…

The Mango, what a sweet delicious fruit.

Mango season just ended about a month ago here in Florida. This succulent fruit was falling off the trees all over southwest Florida. My friends have a Mango Tree and would bring sliced wedges to the beach. We would blend them up in cocktails. We would add them to salads. What a deliciously versatile tropical fruit.

This week’s Boat Drink Recipe pays respect to the mango in a drink called Mango Banana Rum Punch. It’s a mixture of Mango Rum, Banana Rum, Mango Nectar, and Orange/Banana juice. Mango Nectar can be found in the International or Ethnic Isle at most grocery stores.

Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is!
