What are slushies?
Slushies are frozen beverage, or frozen drink, made of flavored ice and a drink, and has soda.
Summer weather with high temperatures is the best time to enjoy a glass of slushies. Mango is king of fruit and when it joins with vodka it makes best slushies.
Even though you can make slushies with all alcohols, I think vodka is one of the best liquors to make drinks with it. You will love this Mango vodka slushy.
This recipe is from The Hard Seltzer Cocktail Book by Casie Vogel. I tried No sleep ‘til Mango Slushy which is in chapter two of book about summer slushies. Book has 4 chapters.
Chapter one is about boozy brunch, third one is about classy classics and chapter 4 about pregame and party.
I like that small book with lot of fun cocktails around 55 recipes you can make with your favorite Hard seltzer.I recommend this book .
How to choose mango for cocktails?
If you are buying frozen mango from the store that is fine. However, I prefer fresh mango for my cocktails.
When you are choosing mango don’t focus on color but gently squeeze them when it is soft it means it is ripe also. Ripe mangos will sometimes have a fruity aroma at their stems.
Choose sweetest mango as possible, yes Haden, Kent, Keitt, and Tommy Atkins are hailed the sweetest and most flavorful. Ataulfo mango/ honey mango are also sweetest. I like them as it has less fibrous than other mango and is great for making cocktails. You can buy fresh mango and peel, seed and chop them into cubes and freeze .
