SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Mang-o-rita Moscato

If your refrigerator is full of leftover Bud Light Mang-o-rita’s from New Year’s Eve and half a liter of wine from a “Parks and Recreation” binge the night before, take lemons and make lemonade. You certainly don’t have to be a bartender to mix my latest lazy invention.

TASTE: Mang-o-rita Moscato is as straight-forward as it sounds: Add some ice to an average wine glass and pour one part Moscato — whichever brand happens to be your favorite, though Barefoot is especially sweet and cheap — and two parts Mang-o-rita (about half a can). With complementary layers of sweetness, this simple cocktail is refreshing, easy to sip, and stronger than the average “o-rita” drink.

ADVICE: For a more summery feel to get you through the winter, go full-on margarita: blend the ice, add some fresh mango to the mix, add a sugar rim on your glass, and garnish with a nice juicy orange or lime slice.
