Cocktail Popsicle: Grilled Mango Smash

Really? Really. Grilled cocktails. I loved the idea of this the moment I ran across a grilled margarita in an Esquire article. Naturally, I had to try it in a cocktail popsicle.

Grilled Mango Smash

 

I’m glad I did and I’m betting you will to.  

If you follow me on Instagram then you saw me post this picture. Yeah, pretty good all on its own, but even better in a popsicle mixed with some rum.  Think sweet mango grilled to the point when the sugar is sweated to the surface for a dark smoky carmelized flavor. Lighting up that sweetness is the fire from the tomatillo, and quietly but confidently, nudging its way in is a slight peppery bite from the basil. And finally, lying beneath all that is a layer of that belly-grabbing barbeque flavor. It’s awesomeness on a stick.

Hit the jump to Endless Simmer for the Grilled Mango Smash recipe.

    This looks amazing but what do you do with the limes? Did I miss that? Squeeze the juice I’m assuming but thought I would check….
    Thanks!!
