Mango Lime Jalapeno Daiquiri

I’m soooo not a daiquiri girl. However, mango, lime and jalapeno? 

I played with so many flavors, and this one came out the winner. I LOVE it.


Generally speaking, I don’t like all that sweet shit.

However, Diplomatico recently sent me a bottle of their rum and this cocktail pretty glass, and I decided to give it a try in a cocktail.  So, to begin with I loved the bottle. I can’t help it; the prettiness drew me in.

AND this rum is delicious.

If you know me, you know that I’ll find any way to incorporate spiciness into anything. I didn’t anticipate making a daiquiri, but based on the stuff I had on hand today I just couldn’t resist. And, once the idea hit me I had to know what this would taste like.

This turned out amazing – better than I thought it would.


This was the perfect frozen drink for my taste. The heat from the jalapeno offsets the mango sweetness perfectly, and the lime kind of marries the two. It’s a beautiful drink.

It tastes like the beach feels.

  • Make the jalapeno syrup by combining the pepper, water and sugar in a sauce pan over medium high heat. Stir for about 5 minutes, consistently, until sugar has dissolved.

    You are a cocktail genius … I LOVE that jalapeno syrup. I’m totally doing that. … and, BTW, how do I get on-board with that “send me a bottle and a free glass” thing? I want!
