Here’s a lineup of four mango-infused cocktails that bring the fruit’s stateliness to your glass.

Mangoes aren't just for smoothies and desserts. With their rich, velvety sweetness, they make an excellent partner for crisp, clean spirits like Smirnoff Vodka and Gordon's Gin.

Here’s a lineup of four mango-infused cocktails that bring the fruit’s stateliness to your glass, proving that mangoes and spirits are a match made in heaven.

Mango Mule with Smirnoff Vodka

Forget the standard Moscow Mule; let's tropicalise it. This Mango Mule throws mango puree into the mix, alongside the traditional lime and ginger beer, with Smirnoff Vodka providing a smooth base. It’s a tangier, sweeter version of the beloved classic.

How to make it

Shake 45 ml Smirnoff Vodka with 30 ml mango puree and 15 ml of lime juice over ice. Strain this into a chilled copper mug over fresh ice, top with ginger beer, and give it a gentle stir. Garnish with a lime wheel and a mint sprig to enhance the freshness

Mango-Tarragon Gin Fizz with Gordon’s Gin

This cocktail is a bit like a garden party in a glass. The herbal notes of tarragon mingle beautifully with the sweetness of mango, while Gordon’s Gin adds depth with its botanicals. Top it off with some fizzy soda water, and you’ve got a sophisticated sip that’s perfect for any occasion.

How to make it

In a shaker, combine 45 ml Gordon’s Gin, 30 ml mango puree, 10 ml lemon juice, and a teaspoon of tarragon-infused simple syrup with ice. Shake well, strain into a highball glass filled with ice, and top with soda water. Garnish with a tarragon sprig and a thin slice of mango.

Spicy Mango Splash with Smirnoff Vodka

If you prefer your cocktails with more personality, this Spicy Mango Splash is a game changer. It brings together Smirnoff Vodka with fiery jalapeño and lush mango for a drink that hits all the right notes—sweet, spicy, and irresistibly smooth.

How to make it

Lightly muddle a few slices of jalapeño in the bottom of a shaker. Add 60 ml Smirnoff Vodka, 30 ml mango puree, and 10 ml lime juice. Shake it like you mean it, then strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a wedge of mango or a jalapeño slice to turn up the heat.

Mango Basil Smash with Gordon's Gin

This drink is all about freshness. The peppery pop of basil pairs with mango's sweet charm, while Gordon’s Gin keeps everything cool and collected in the background. It’s easy, breezy, and just a little bit boozy.

How to make it

Muddle some fresh basil leaves with lemon juice and a splash of simple syrup in a shaker. Add 45 ml of Gordon’s Gin and 30 ml of mango puree. Top with crushed ice, shake gently, and pour everything (don’t strain) into a rocks glass. Garnish with a few basil leaves and a slice of mango.
