Blue Curacao Melted Mango Cocktail Recipe

 Your first and your last sip will taste like two different -- and equally delicious -- drinks, via the melting action of the mango ice cubes.

Ingredients:
1 shot Blue Curacao
1 shot orange rum
1 can or bottle of pineapple soda
1 can or bottle of mango nectar

You'll Also Need:

an ice cube tray

Step-by-Step:

 1. Fill the ice cube tray with mango nectar. Freeze.

 2. Place the mango ice cubes in a glass.

3. Add a shot of orange rum to the glass.

4. Add a shot of Blue Curacao to the glass.

5. Fill up the glass with pineapple soda.

6. Enjoy! As the ice melts, enjoy the addition of sweet mango nectar to your drink.

Serves 1.

The AHH Factor:
Our American Standard air conditioner is broken again. It is only three years old, yet it has broken not once, not twice, not three times, not four times, but five times in the past year. After fiddling with it for an hour, the most recent in the revolving door of repairman declared that he had no idea what was wrong with it. At least he's honest! So now we wait until later this week to have yet another company (mis)diagnose it. There are few things that are more frustrating...AHH. In the meantime, I have tried all manner of creative ways to stay cool. One solution was this cocktail.

The adorable fish-shaped ice cube tray was a birthday gift. Isn't it cute? Of course, any standard ice cube tray will do for this recipe. The beauty of this concoction (in addition its pretty blue-green color) is that the drink continues to make itself while in your glass. My friend Joan told me about a bar in Atlanta that too serves a drink with flavored ice cubes. Many people flavor ice cubes to match their drink (like freezing lemonade then adding it to a glass of lemonade), but I love the idea of adding a whole new ingredient by way of ice cube. You first sip of the drink tastes like pineapple. Your last sip tastes like mango. The orange mango nectar even makes your drink change to a deeper green like a mood ring telling you that you are feeling happy. (That happy feeling probably has something to do with the Blue Curacao and orange rum too.)

Pineapple and orange are probably more indicative of Caribbean-tropics rather than Indian-tropics and the mango goes both ways, but you'll have to excuse me for the barely-passable take on fusion. I blame it on the lack of air conditioning melting my brain.
