Mango Tango Cocktail Recipe – Boat Drinks

Mango Tango Drink Recipe

I have little black book with the recipes to some amazing cocktails, but I know there is a bar full of other drinks that I know nothing about.  A great source of original island cocktails is on the island themselves, via the crazy creative island resort bartenders.

I asked Secrets Resorts to share the recipe for their famous Mango Tango blended cocktail so that you beach bums can try it at home.  Always a crowd pleaser, the Mango Tango is a combination of Strawberry Daiquiri and Mango Daiquiri. Secrets Resorts have world class accommodations in the Riveria Maya, Dominican Republic and Jamaica, so they know a thing or two about kicking back with a refreshing drink.

Mango Tango Cocktail Recipe

Mango Daiquiri (makes 2)

  • 3 ounces dark rum
  • 1 1/2 cups mangoes, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 cups ice cubes

– Blend in a blender until smooth. Pour 1/4 of drink mixture into a glass.

Strawberry Daiquiri (makes 2)

  • 1 ounce light rum
  • 1 ounce strawberry schnapps
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • dash grenadine
  • dash orange juice
  • 2 cups ice cubes

– Blend in a blender until smooth. Pour 1/4 of drink mixture on top of Mango Daquiri mixture.

    Tried this cocktail at the Valentin Imperial Maya, Mexico while at a family wedding and loved it! My mom (who doesn’t typically drink alcohol) actually liked it and I’m thrilled you have the recipe, so I can bring back the Mexican memory on Mother’s day tomorrow. Thanks for bringing this one home “Rum Shop Ryan” – keep ’em coming and enjoy your future cocktail adventures (I know I will) 🙂

  6. My pleasure Cocktail Girl! Cheers!

  7. Do I need to use Cruzan mango rum for this or the dark rum? The picture shows mango rum but the recipe shows a regular rum. Wasn’t sure what to use? I have been looking for a recipe for this for a while ever since i returned from cancun. Thanks for sharing

  8. Thanks for the comment Hari. It should be a dark rum. You don’t have to use Cruzan, it’s one of my main go to rum for mixing though. Some recipes I’ve seen add a little Mango Rum to it and some use the mango fruit chunks. That’s what I prefer. The drink already has 4oz. of rum so the Mango Rum is a bit over kill. Looks good in the photo though! Hope this helps. Cheers!

  9. I drank a LOT of these while at Secrets Marquis Cabo san Lucas. It tasted like I had died and gone to heaven!
