Mango Lime Cooler

Mango Lime Coolers

Jessica Braider
This sparkling summer drink, invented by my colleague Linda Wolpert, is wonderfully refreshing on a hot summer day. For an adult cocktail, add an ounce of rum to each glass.
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves plus a few extra sprigs for garnish
  • 6 limes juice only (about 1 cup)
  • 6 cups seltzer water
  • 1/2 cup fresh mango cut into 1/2-inch chunks, or use frozen.

Instructions
 

  • Thaw the frozen mango, if using it.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water over medium-high heat and bring it to a boil. When it comes to a boil, stir in the mint, cover, and remove it from the heat. Let it cool for at least 5 minutes.
  • Strain the mint syrup into a pitcher (I use a fine metal strainer). Add the lime juice, seltzer and mangos.
  • Serve it over ice, garnished with the extra mint sprigs.
