If you like mango coladas and getting caught in the rain. Isn’t that the way the song goes? This Puerto Rican piña colada puts a tropical spin on the popular frozen concoction. Made with mango instead of pineapple, this version includes the smooth taste of Hennessy, giving this summer cocktail a little kick.
Inspired by a traditional piña colada this mango colada will be the hit of your next fiesta…believe me.
This is such an easy cocktail to make. All you need is a blender, some ice, cream of coconut, Hennessy, rum, and a mango. If you don’t like cutting fresh mango then feel free to use frozen mango. The frozen fruit will work just as well since this is a frozen drink. And don’t forget to garnish these cocktails with a maraschino cherry and a mango slice.
This cocktail is best paired with a plantain dish such as mofongo, a Puerto Rican dish made with fried plantains as its main ingredient or tostones, twice-fried plantain slices.
