National Daiquiri Day aka Chef Ashley Simone's Birthday!

Today is my birthday and also is National Daiquiri Day. So in honor of both of these fabulous occasions, I give you a new cocktail, the Spicy Mango-Ginger Daiquiri. This recipe uses two of my favorite ingredients, mango and ginger. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do and maybe even have a Daiquiri-gasm! CHEERS

Spicy Mango-Ginger Daiquiri
Makes 1 cocktail

2 oz. Golden Rum
1 oz. Lime Juice
3/4 oz. Ginger-Jalapeno Syrup
3/4 oz. Mango Puree

Add rum, lime juice, ginger-jalapeno syrup and mango puree to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a wedge of jalapeno. Enjoy.

Ginger-Jalapeno Syrup
Makes 2 cups syrup

1 Cup Honey
1 Cup Water
1 Jalapeno (sliced )
2 oz. fresh ginger root (peeled and sliced)

Bring honey, water, jalapeño and ginger just to boil in small pot. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool and strain. This syrup will keep for 3 weeks in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
