He didn’t go to 8 years of evil medical school to me called “Mr. No”!
Cocktail: Underneath de Mango Tree, after the grating song that even our hero surprisingly sings.
- Fill an Old Fashioned glass with crushed ice. In an ice-filled shaker, combine 2oz dark rum, 1oz mango juice (more on that later), 1/2oz lime juice, 1/4oz orgeat syrup. Shake and strain into the glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
This retro remake (all the way back to our very first podcast!) was tweaked a bit as I’ve grown wiser in the ways of cocktail making (and didn’t have any pineapple to add for the original garnish). I used crushed ice instead of blending everything, and made my own mango juice, since most of what i saw in the stores was a mixture with a bunch of unnecessary additives. Simply skin and cut a mango or two and throw it in a blender with a little water and simple syrup to taste. Keep adding water (and syrup) until you get a consistency you like. Don’t overdo it though- it should be pretty thick. Check out our original recipe (pretty much the same) and thoughts on the movie on our Dr. No episode!
