Vodka and Mango Frozen Cocktails
Vodka and Mango Frozen Cocktails.....also known as Slush puppies or Slurpees for adults :-)
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Use the options below to toggle between cups and grams (if relevant)
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 450 g (1 lb) frozen mango chunks (see notes)
- 2/3 cup vodka
- 2 limes
- 1 cup ice
- Lime slices for garnish
Place the sugar and water in a small pan and heat gently until the sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool.
Remove the mango chunks from the freezer and leave them to soften slightly (about 5-10 minutes).
Pour the vodka into the food processor, add the mango chunks and then squeeze in the juice from the limes.
Puree until you have a thick smooth slush.
Taste and use the sugar water to sweeten to taste (I add it all!)
Puree once more and then pour into glasses.
Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
For the frozen mango, I buy the pre-prepared bags that you can buy in the supermarket. They work out far more economical!
However if you have a excess of fresh mangos, cut them into chunks and freeze on a lined baking sheet before transferring to a ziplock bag.
If you are using homemade frozen mango, only leave it to defrost for 5 minutes as the pieces tend to be smaller and will soften quicker.
