Tips & tricks

Check out these basic tips and tricks so that you can have the perfect mango mojito:

  • For the best flavor, use fresh lime juice instead of bottled lime juice. You can also just use lime wedges since you will muddle all of the ingredients together.
  • I recommend using fresh mango instead of frozen. If you only have frozen, then allow it to thaw before muddling it with the other ingredients.
  • Don’t serve the mango mojito until you’re ready to drink it, otherwise the ice could melt and water down the drink. This is especially important on a hot day!

What to serve with a Mango Mojito

Serve this citrusy twist on a classic mojito with any of your favorite appetizers and snacks. Shishito peppers with garlic aioli are always a good dish to pair with this cocktail! Some air fryer mozzarella sticks or queso fundido would be great too.

This would also be so yummy when you plan to have fish tacos for dinner! Serve it up as a quick game-day cocktail when you make air fryer chicken wings too.
