Cocktail Friday: Mango Sparkle

Because sometimes I’m in the mood for something… a little girly.

I’m not the biggest fan of the myriad varieties of flavored vodkas that seem to have saturated the market these past few years, but I will cop to having a few bottles (Cherry, vanilla, and in a moment of supreme weakness, whipped cream flavored) in my freezer. I like the sweet stuff, what can I say?

On occasion, anyway.

Plus, Prosecco just classes that shit right up. Side note: these mini bottles? Worst best idea ever. Like I needed the temptation to drink more.

Mango Sparkle

  • 2 oz vanilla vodka
  • 4 oz mango nectar (try the Latin/international section at the grocery store)
  • 2 oz prosecco (or any sparkling wine)

Fill a martini glass with ice and set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add vodka and mango nectar and cover. Shake well. Dump ice out of martini glass. Using a cocktail strainer, pour vodka and nectar into glass. Add prosecco to fill. Stir gently to combine.

Cheers.
