just because a drink has a corny name doesn’t mean its not delicious :)
i made this last night and it was supposed to be hot pink. i was going to call it the “hot pink drink”. hot pink would have been so cute for Valentines Day! but then it didn’t quite turn out. its a pretty color, but definitely not the right color. I sent a picture to mom and we started brainstorming names. I regretted that pretty quickly when she started sending me names like “Tropical Red”, “Red of my Heart” and “Dance the Mango RUMba” (whhat?) ha. but then she came up with “be my man(go)” and althought its corny and silly, I think its pretty darn cute :)
i’m pretty sure that most men love fruity drinks. when pat and i went to mexico, he was allllll over those banana rum smoothies. you men can try to be tough scotch drinkers all you want, but you KNOW fruity drinks taste the best. this one is no exception. be my man(go) and give this tasty vday drink a try!
i used Mango Malibu Rum in these bad boys, it was SO good. i had never had it, but its worth the buy. very refreshing! it blended so well with the fruit juices.
i clearly made these for Valentine’s Day, but this would be a great summer cocktail as well. it almost made me forget that there’s a -10 degree windchill outside my door. (ugh)
