Though I’m a big fan of peach puree, I’m also a fan of exerting as little effort as possible, and have found that pre-made smoothies actually make pretty delicious cocktail mixers while requiring no blending or straining.

In addition to a bit of mango smoothie, this tall glass of refreshment also features rum and sparkling wine (because it’s delicious). To make it, you will need:

  • 45mL bottled mango smoothie
  • 30mL white rum
  • Prosecco (or other sparkling wine) to top

Chill all of your ingredients, as well as a champagne flute. Add the rum and smoothie to flute and stir. Top with the bubbly wine of your choice and sip your way to a better mood.
