Some of the most quintessential flavors of summer are the tropical ones, like coconut, kiwi, papaya or pineapple. I suppose it’s because these fruits make us think about vacation, places we’ve been, places we want to go. It’s been a bit cooler in North Carolina this week, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been dreaming of faraway places myself.
These Frozen Mango Daiquiris are the ticket, y’all. Put some frozen mango, rum, triple sec, lime juice and ice into a blender. Blend it really smooth, pour it into some glasses with some pretty straws, maybe a tiny pink paper parasol, and pretend you’re in Hawaii. (Some recipes also require additional sweeteners, like sugar, agave or honey, but I find the mango to be just perfect on its own.) But really, this five-ingredient recipe is brilliant. Enjoy and have a great weekend, friends! // susannah
