It’s a flavor explosion.
There’s so much going on in this spicy mango mojito recipe, the minty freshness, the sweet mango, and the spicy jalapeño all intermingle to create something so unique and absolutely tasty.
Want to up the heat? Try swapping out the sugar for habanero simple syrup. It’s a big chili upgrade, so careful with the amounts you use. If you want to slightly lessen the heat, remove the seeds from the jalapeño wheels prior to muddling.
