I recently attended the Bacardi Legacy competition finals in San Francisco and while witnessing all of the amazing bartenders from around the world mixing inventive concoctions, I was inspired.
Once I returned home, I took a bottle of the Bacardi Carta Blanca from my cabinet and started stirring, shaking and blending. Many delicious concoctions were created that day and today I want to share my favorite recipe that came out of that experimentation with you.
This Mango Piña Colada was created using the most tropical produce I could find at the market. Starting with the traditional Piña Colada as the base, adding mango really provides this classic summer cocktail with a twist it deserves.
- 2 ounces of Bacardi Carta Blanca Rum
- 3 ounces of pineapple juice
- 1 ounce of coconut cream
- 1 ounce of lime juice
- ½ cup of fresh mango
- 1 cup of ice
- agave syrup to taste
In a blender add all ingredients. Blend mixture then pour into serving glass. Garnish with a lime.
