Mango Pineapple Martini
Inspiration is an interesting thing. You can find it anywhere at any time, so I wasn’t surprised when my inspiration for this week’s martini recipe came from another summertime drink from McDonald’s. As you may recall, a few weeks back, McDonald’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade provided inspiration for the Strawberry Lemonade Martini (get the recipe HERE!). Well Divas, they’ve done it again!
This week, I saw a commercial on television for McDonald’s new Mango Pineapple Smoothie…automatic inspiration! I instantly knew how to transform this smoothie into a martini that my fellow Divas would love. You would tell me if you hate it, wouldn’t you? And now, without further adieu, I present to you the Mango Pineapple Martini!
3 oz of Your Favorite Vodka
½ Cup of Fresh Mangoes (You can get them already prepped at the supermarket)
½ Cup of Pineapple Juice
Frozen Pineapple Chunks for Garnish
1. In a blender, puree mangoes and pineapple juice. Mixture should be smooth and easily pourable.
2. In a shaker, combine vodka, mango pineapple mixture, and ice. Shake!
3. Drop 2 to 3 frozen pineapple chunks in a chilled martini glass.
4. Strain mixture into martini glass.
Now, don’t get this mixed up with McDonald’s smoothie….the Mango Pineapple Martini is more potent! Enjoy and Drink Responsibly!
