Icy Sparkling Mango Cooler

Summer get-togethers need a cocktail, right? Right?? And since I like spending time with my guests instead of being stuck in the kitchen or behind the bar, I like to prep in advance. And that certainly includes the drinks. Brunch parties need something light and fruity and easy on the added sugar but I have lots of ideas for that.

Icy Sparkling Mango Cooler
Fruit is a great way to naturally sweet drinks but once you add alcohol and lime juice, they still do need some help. But I have a trick for skinny-ing up a cocktail so that it's sweet enough but without the extra calories. Instead of making a traditional simple syrup with equal parts sugar and water, I just use Sweet 'N Low instead to make the syrup. It's a zero calorie sweetener that lets me enjoy the sweetness I want without the added calories.

You can just add the sweetener on it's own but I like making sure that everything is properly dissolved and the best way to do that is with syrup. It blended perfectly with my sweet mangoes, tart fresh lime juice and beautiful, fragrant mint. Pour it into a big pitcher and relax over a great brunch. Cheers!

To make the syrup, add the sweetener and water to a pot and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir to dissolve the sweetener. Allow to cool for a few minutes.

Make the drink by adding the frozen mango chunks to a blender along with the rum, lime juice, skinny syrup, salt and mint. Puree until smooth, add the club soda and mix until combined. Pour into a large pitcher filled with ice cubes and garnish each drink with additional mint, if desired.
