You already know we love easy mixed drinks recipes, but this new flavor is simply amazing. The Jamaican Cocktail is a combination of favorite tropical flavors using a Svedka infused Mango Pineapple Vodka as the liquor base. Not only is it a perfect drink for an afternoon poolside, it is a great choice to compliment your favorite grilled recipes.
Easy Mixed Drinks: The Jamaican Cocktail
We love grilling, and you’ve probably seen some of our favorite recipes for things like grilled chicken and sausage or the ultimate ribs floating around our site. Since grilling always makes me think of tropical locations, I knew I wanted to create something delicious and refreshing with this Svedka Mango Pineapple Vodka. The result was one of our best easy mixed drinks recipes yet!
- 2.5 ounces Svedka Mango Pineapple Vodka
- 3 ounces Jamaican Ginger Beer
- Mango Slices
- Crushed Ice
- In a cocktail shaker add Svedka Mango Pineapple vodka, Jamaican Ginger Beer and ice.
- Using a bartender’s stirring stick stir ingredients until thoroughly combined.
- Serve with a slice of fresh mango.
Drink responsibly, and do not drink and drive
I love finding fresh ripe mango on sale in the market, and it was just the inspiration needed for this drink. While it displays beautifully as a single slice, you may find it is easier to eat when cubed and added to a drink pick on the edge of the drink.
I also love these short glasses for easy mixed drinks like this one. They are just the right size to give a great serving, without feeling like it is too little. It helps you maintain the focus of not overindulging, while still feeling like you are getting something special. There is a similar version that is a whiskey glass you can buy that I also think works great for this type of cocktail.
Serving up an easy mixed drinks recipes like our version in what I have dubbed, The Jamaican Cocktail, is so easy to manage. You can easily impress your guests with your bartending skills when you simply use great quality and flavored liquor for your drinks. Add in some nice chilled fresh fruit as a garnish, and you’ve given your friends a cocktail they will be asking for time and again.
