Mango Cocktail

When ever I go to facebook I see my Indian friends mentioning that they went to the market and bought juicy ripe mangoes and here I am with no Indian shop aroung so don't have the opourtunity to get hold of the fresh juicy mangoes.
So I just drool in the pics they post of juicy mangoes.
Few days back I went to the supermarket and I found they had this Mango fruit syrup from Monin and I coudn't resist buying them as we do make a lot of time coktails on weekends or when we have guest.

On the bottle itself they had this recipe for Vodka cocktail and Vodka is one of our favourite drink as till now that never give me headache :-)

If you don't have this syrup I am sure you can make this cocktail with fresh mango pulp which i am sure would be much more tastier.

For a 120 ml glass.
30 mlLe fruit de Monin Mango
40 ml Vodka / Gin / Rum ( I used Vodka)
10 ml lemon juice ( Used lime)
Few cubes of ice
Put everything in a shaker , shake and then strain and serve.
