- 1 piece fresh ginger, 3 inches peeled and thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- coarse sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups mango nectar
- 9 ounces vodka
- 4 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- In small saucepan, bring 1/2 c water, the ginger, and granulated sugar to a boil, stirring, to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat. Refrigerated for 20 minutes. Strain into a pitcher.
- Fill small dish with coarse sugar. Lightly wet the rims of 6 martini glasses, then, one by one, turn them over and rotate the rims in the coarse sugar to coat. Add the mango nectar, vodka, and lime juice to the pitcher; stir well. Refrigerate until chilled. Serve in prepared glasses.
Very good. I think making the drink a few hours in advance would be best, as the flavor really improves the longer it sits in the fridge. The drink tasted quite gross and strong when I first made it, but tasted divine after around 6 hours. I skipped the brown sugar and served the drink in martini glasses with some sliced limes and sliced jalapenos. Thanks for sharing.
