In less crazy times, you may not find a Mango Mule recipe in our Cancer-Kicking! Kitchen – generally we focus on recipes with disease-fighting ingredients. Having said that, 2020 hasn’t been enitrely normal. There are antioxidants in fruit like mango, but juices generally spike insulin and let your body absorb that fruit sugar at a rapid pace.

During Covid, however, limiting your alcohol consumption is a big enough Cancer-Kicking! reason itself to include this non-alcoholic mocktail recipe. Not sure about the connection between alcohol and breast health? Read my blog post for all the details about why it matters during Covid (and after). And if you still prefer that occasional drink, be sure to supplement with Cosmo Companion to counteract the negative health effects.

Now, on to our Mocktail recipe. Mango is an acquired taste for some, but I just find it so delicious and soothing. The ginger beer adds just enough kick to the recipe to give it a unique cocktail-like taste profile. After having a few sips, you might think you are on holiday somewhere (permanent Covid holiday, anyone?).

Ingredients

  • 5 slices of cucumber

  • 1/2 oz of simple syrup

  • 1.5 oz of mango puree

  • 1.5 oz of fresh lime juice

  • 2 oz of ginger beer

  • Some mint, lime and cucumber for garnish

Instructions

  • Muddle cucumber and simple syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker
  • Add the mango puree and lime juice and shake with ice
  • Pour drink with the ice into a glass
  • Top it off with ginger beer, then stir
  • Garnish with a lime slice, cucumber slice, and a sprig of mint
  • And whenever you decide to just go for the real deal, you would simply add a shot of your favorite vodka and you’ll be set. But, drink responsibly and supplement to minimize the negative health effects.

Notes

  • All recipes from the Cancer-Kicking! Kitchen are always 100% plant-based and delicious. Check our Ingredient Spotlight feature to learn what makes each ingredient special, and use our Purity Scale to see just how healthy and plant-pure your recipe is.
