CREAMY COCONUT MANGO MEZCALRITAS


Friends, it feels absolutely incredible to be back today with a fresh COCKTAIL recipe! It’s been quite awhile since my last blog post — between a wonderful, 3 week workcation in the country, to making the most of some business-related travel in Edmonton (where we enjoyed a little weekend getaway!), I’ve been (safely) bouncing around all over the province like a true digital nomad this month. Although I’ve had my camera and laptop in tow and have still been creating content, keeping my socials updated (have you stopped by Instagram lately to see what I’ve been up to?) and working on some exciting projects, I couldn’t find the time to actually sit down, process and edit imagery, write long-form content and publish a blog post! Instead, I had some long overdue development tasks taken care of behind the scenes here at JustineCelina to get the site back in pristine working order (hopefully you haven’t even noticed!). Overall it’s been a very lucrative and productive month, although blog content took a back seat — so thank you for your patience and understanding! I’m thrilled to be back with this clean slate, feeling refreshed and ready to bring you tons of summer content — commencing with these Creamy Coconut Mango Mezcalritas!

I’ve been sipping away on these jubilant, Oaxacan-inspired cocktails since Cinco de Mayo when I whipped them up for a festive night in, simply using what we had on hand — and the results were absolutely delicious! My Creamy Coconut Mango Mezcalritas are a perfectly balanced libation that are equal parts smoky, citrusy, creamy, spicy and sweet — and are (as always!) free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar. A healthy dose of hand-crafted mezcal and creamy coconut milk combine with fresh mango and lime juices, along with a splash of Cointreau, agave nectar and just a hint of red chilli before they’re shaken over ice and strained into a Himalayan pink salt and Tajín rimmed glass. Make the most of this very welcome heatwave with an inspired seasonal sip that will virtually transport you to a tranquil ocean shore from the comfort of your own home, backyard or patio! Cheers to finding new ways to bring TRAVEL into our lives this year!

In hindsight, I’m also incredibly grateful that we nearly missed our plane home from Huatulco back in January due to our massive mezcal run just prior to takeoff! We took great care in selecting a few premium Oaxacan mezcals to commemorate our trip — one that was recommended by the locals (which I used in this recipe), along with a couple of others that caught our eye. Given the state of the world it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to visit again anytime soon, so we’ve been enjoying many a mezcal cocktail at home this year — and I love having this little taste of Oaxaca right in our home bar!

The inspiration for this particular cocktail stems from lazy afternoons spent lounging by the pool after lunch at the Beach Club, sipping away on mango mezcalritas under the scorching Oaxacan sun. While the mango mezcalritas at our resort actually taste nothing like my Creamy Coconut Mango Mezcalritas, I did flag it as a flavour combination I wanted to explore in my own cocktailing adventures as I find in incredibly refreshing!

The decorated Mezcal Amores Espadín Reposado I’ve used in this recipe has all the qualities of traditional Oaxacan mezcal. It’s smoky, woody and warm — but it also has creamy notes of vanilla, agave and amber making the finish super smooth. These more nuanced flavours inspired me to experiment with a creamy, coconut based cocktail — at first of its kind here at JustineCelina, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way this recipe came together.

My Creamy Coconut Mango Mezcalritas are a mosaic of complimentary and contrasting flavours, textures and colours — an ode to traditional Mexican spirits and ingredients! If you’re down to take your taste buds on a Oaxacan-inspired adventure this summer, I’d love it if you shook one up with me!

Have you ever tried mezcal? If you’re into tequila and up for exploring a smoky, spicy flavour profile, I absolutely recommend picking up a bottle! You can also substitute a quality mezcal (there are many fantastic mezcals available locally) into your other favourite tequila based cocktails to impart a smoky note. That said, if you’re not able to source mezcal, you can absolutely still enjoy this recipe with your favourite tequila — I promise it will be just as delicious!

    I’ve been waiting for this recipe and I’m hoping we have another heat wave so I have an excuse to go grab a bottle of mezcal. Please tell me this isn’t the end of summer yet!!

      Cheers, Bernice! Looks like there’s another heat wave coming our way next week. We’re hoping for a long, hot summer too — mostly for the garden’s sake! Haha. Oh, how times have changed!

    I have never ventured into Mezcal but I definitely will now – it’s going to be the perfect addition to my Cinco de Mayo menu! This is a beautiful drink and I adore those glasses!

    • Reply Justine August 17, 2020 at 11:03 pm

      I hope you love them as much as we do, Terri! Mezcal is wonderfully complex — I’ve been loving learning more about it over the past decade or so during our trips to Oaxaca. Cheers!
