Refreshing and super delicious: The Green-Mango-Lime-Spritz is the perfect drink for hot summer days!
Although we love the classic “Aperol Spritz” and the “Hugo” with elder-flower syrup, we sometimes just want to try something new and exciting. So we created a more exotic version of the Spritz with an arousing acidity and intense asian flavours.
We used a green mango, two limes and a spice infused sugar syrup to create the drink. You should best serve it with a lot of ice and a piece of lime for decoration.
Try our new creation. Hope you like it!
- 1 green mango
- 2 limes
- 6 dl Prosecco
Sugar syrup infused with cardamon and cinnamon:
- 140 g sugar
- 70 ml water
- 1/2 cinnamon stick
- 4 cardamon capsules
Sugar syrup infused with cardamon and cinnamon
Just put the water, the cardamon, the cinnamon and the sugar in a pan and heat them up. As soon as the water boils, slightly reduce the heat and let the sugar dissolve. Keep the liquid boiling and thickening until there are no sugar crystals left. Make sure that the sugar doesn’t caramelize and don’t let your syrup become too thick. Once finished, pour the syrup through a sieve in a glass bottle and store it in the refrigerator. Unopened, the syrup is usable up to half a year and after opening the bottle, for about 6 weeks.
Peel the mango and cut it into big slices. Put all the pieces into a bowl together with the juice of two limes and mix them with a blender until you get a smooth puree. Pass it through a mesh strainer and put the puree into the fridge.
Mix the Green-Mango-Lime-Spritz
Add 3 tablespoons of the mango-lime-puree, 2 tablespoons of the sugar syrup and 1.5 dl Prosecco into a vessel (multiply those amounts with the number of glasses you want to serve) and mix all the ingredients with the blender for just two seconds, so that the prosecco bubbles are not disappearing but the ingredients get well mixed anyway. The hand blending provides the drink with this foamy texture which feels pretty nice on your tongue.
Add some ice cubes into the arranged glasses, pour the mixture over them and decorate the drink with a piece of lime and for example some elder-flowers (in spring) or lavender (in summer).
Et voilà, it’s ready to serve. Enjoy!
