Jump to Recipe

Hot days of summer call for homemade Mango Mocktail! Cool off with this refreshing Mango Mocktail or modified Aam Panna this summer!

Aam Panna is one of the most popular Indian summer drinks made from fresh raw mango, mint leaves, and roasted cumin powder. It is loved by one and all across India. Mangos and summer are synonymous to me. The vibrant colors make you so cheerful and jolly!

To celebrate summer, we make this mango mocktail often. It tastes so tangy and pop on the palate that you too would have it on repeats.  It instantly gives you that feel of island paradise right at home.When I invite friends over for dinner, I love welcoming them with special drinks, like this pretty perfect Mango Mocktail.  It’s the perfect way to kick off the evening. It let’s everyone feel relaxed and excited for the food and good times ahead! This easy and delicious drink is always a hit! A nice balance of all the ingredients tastes amazing!

This recipe for this mango mocktail is pretty straight forward. When it comes to homemade drinks, the sweetness and tang can be adjusted to taste. If you prefer it sweeter, add more sugar. If you like it sour or tart add some lemon juice or raw green mango.

That’s the best part about making mocktails at home, isn’t it? So easily customizable! Prefer to make it Margarita instead? Add generous serving of tequila and shake-shake-shake ! Frozen or on the rocks -make a choice and cheers to best healthy life !!

Mango Mocktail
I only used one jalapeño slice in each drink so not to over power it with spicy hot flavors . The tiny tickling tinge it adds was perfect for my taste.  If you like it on the HOT side, then by all means, add more jalapeño slices!

When I’m hosting a party,  I always make sure everyone feel special. That includes little tikes- the kids ! So mocktails will always be as decorated as alcoholic beverages. Why not, right? Plus it makes them feel included and special.

The rim of this drink is a simple mixture of kosher salt and paprika powder… the paprika powder adds a beautiful color without extra spice and it complements all of the flavors of the drink perfectly.

    Well this is perfect timing! I am planning my birthday dinner right now and wanted a Margarita as a welcome drink – I love the twist on this one. I will be following your suggestion of a “generous serving of tequila” for sure 🙂
