This cocktail, with the lush taste of mango, comes from Salvatore Calabrese’s book “Cocktails by Flavor,” a welcome guide to the use of herbs, fruit and vegetables in cocktails. Mangoes are available year-round in market and what doesn’t make it into this cocktail is great as a breakfast fruit or in a smoothie.
