Mango Mint Spicy Mocktail

    Mango-Mint-Mocktail

    I recently went to a Mexican restaurant and ordered a drink which sounded interesting, on the menu. It combined soda with mango, mint and had a tinge of spice added to it. I really liked the drink and thought of making the same at home.

    So here it is, a very easy mocktail recipe which you can make in 2 minutes. Adding sugar in the recipe is optional, for me the sugar in the mango nectar was enough.  I used this mango nectar which I got from Traders Joe’s.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups sparkling water, or soda water
    • 2 cups mango nectar
    • 5-6 mint leaves, finely chopped
    • 2 slices jalapeno pepper
    • chaat masala, to sprinkle
    • Sugar: 1-2 tsp [optional, I didn't use]

    Instructions

    1. Wash the mint leaves and chop them finely.
    2. Take a jalapeno pepper and cut two thin slices from it. The jalapeno that I used was quite spicy so a slice per glass was good enough. In case the one you have isn't spicy enough, feel free to add more slices.
    3. Mix the sparkling water and mango puree in a jar. If using sugar, add that too.
    4. Pour into serving glasses, and sprinkle with chopped mint leaves, jalapeno slice [1 per glass] and chaat masala.
