Coco Mango Cocktail with CK Mondavi Wine

Before we go camping, we always stock the travel trailer with lots of cocktail mixing ingredients. However, no matter how big our trailer is, with 2 kids, 2 dogs, and all their crap, storage is scarce, so I have to be strategic in my cocktail recipe planning. Oh and did I mention that I don’t use cocktail mixes?  Yeah…I make everything fresh.  Now, you understand the packing predicament.
For our St. Augustine weekend, the plan was to use a CK Mondavi Blonde Five and mango. Because Florida (anywhere in Florida)is hotter than hell in the summer, I also knew that my cocktail had to be cool and refreshing.

The end result…a beautifully yellow-orange glass of sweet, tart, light yumminess.

1 c. frozen mango puree

1 c. like syrup (1 c lime juice & 1 c sugar heated just until the sugar melts)

1 can coconut water

1 mango-peeled & chunked

1 bottle CK Mondavi Blonde Five

Lemon Lime Seltzer

Mix mango puree, lime syrup, coconut water, and wine in a large pitcher. To serve, pour 1-2 c punch in cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake. Pour into a glass with a few mango chunks. Top with Seltzer.
