Engagement Barcardi Mango Colada

There is such a thing as too much champagne.  There.  I have said it.  Uttered the words that I thought that I would never say.

I always thought that there could not possibly be such a thing as too much champagne, but there is.  Ed asked me to marry him on our recent trip to Brittany.  I was delighted to say yes! We came back home and the champagne started, families and friends all offered glass after glass of fizz and I am afraid to say that champagne fatigue set in.  I am convinced this is only temporary.  I adore champagne.

I am on a coconut kick at the moment and for the last visitors Ed popped to the supermarket (photos here) and returned with Bacardi, coconut water, limes, the biggest mango I have ever seen (which sadly disappointed), some coriander and a red chilli to turn into coconut based cocktails.

Bacardi Cocktail Ingredients

Coconut water is one of my favourite ingredients at the moment – subtely coconutty and very refreshing.

My cocktail was based on a Piña Colada – swapping mango for the pineapple and using coconut water in place of the cream.  For a little added interest and a kick I added a few leaves of coriander and the tip of a red chilli.

Recipe: Bacardi Mango Colada

Perfect for a hot summer when you have had too much champagne and are newly engaged

Makes 4 champagne glasses

330ml coconut water – chilled
1 mango – peeled, destoned and cubed – had I had more time I would have frozen mine.
200ml Bacardi – chilled
Good squeeze of lime (depending on the sweetness of the mango)
spring of coriander
Touch of red chilli

Place all the ingredients into a blender and whizz until smooth.

Serve immediately and enjoy with friends.

Serve in long stemmed glasses to maximise the potential to wriggle your newly adorned ring finger!

    Congratulations! Can we have a picture of the ring please?

    How exciting, being proposed to in France is very romantic! Well done Ed on popping the question.

    OO the drink sounds lovely too.

  3. Wow, these look amazing! I must admit I never like champagne quite as much as I feel I really should, but I am a big coconut fan so these are perfect for me.

  4. Congratulations!! Woop! And yes, there is such a thing as too much champagne. I don’t like much more than a couple of glasses before prefering to move on to the wine or cocktails instead. And this looks yummy.

  5. Coconut and mango are two of my favourite things, so this looks wonderful to me! :)

  6. I know I’d love this one. Reminds me a bit of the Costa Mango and Passionfruit Cooler – lovely in this heat!

  7. Congratulations.

    These definitely look delicious (although I’m still a champagne fan).

  8. Congratulations on your engagement and sorry to hear you’ve been all champagned out, that’s a bit of a shocker :) But I must say I like the sound of your bacardi concoction!
