The weather can be unpredictable these days, swinging from stormy and windy to hot and humid with very little warning. Here’s a cocktail you can enjoy regardless of the kind of weather we have. Southern Sunshine, from ICX Parties, is a take on the classic margarita. The addition of mango puree and basil and spicy salt, gives a different dimension to the drink. This sweet-spicy combination is lip-smackingly good.

Ingredients:

  • 60 ml tequila
  • 30 ml mango puree
  • 15 ml lime juice
  • 30 ml triple sec
  • 3 basil leaves, clapped

Directions: 

  1. Pour tequila, mango puree, lime juice, triple sec in shaker.
  2. Clap basil, add ice and shake.
  3. Strain into Tabaso and chili flake salt-rimmed glass and garnish with mango slice
