So 2 days after the massive Indian themed birthday feast, and I’m still tired. But I could not have had a better birthday. The curry night went so incredibly well and my family and friends could not stop raving about how delicious everything was, every cooks dream! I got compliments about the decor, the martini’s and let’s just say, my family grew uncharacteristically quiet while eating the creamy and decadent chocolate mousse. I was very, very happy! I got some more Exclusive Books vouchers and added the lovely Comfort by Tina Bester to my cookbook collection. After BAKE, I knew I had to get her latest offering.
And as I promised, here are the first of the recipes that formed part of my Indian Feast. We started the night off with Mango Martini’s (or as I called them, Mangotini’s) and they were oh so yummy! I would’ve probably enjoyed a warm cup of Chai Tea more as it was so icy in Pretoria, but never-the-less, everyone loved them. Very easy to make (I just did it in a jug) and quite a crowd pleaser.
2 Parts Vodka
1 part Triple Sec
3 Parts Mango Juice
1 part Lime Juice
Mix all the ingredients together and serve with a lime wedge and an ice cube.
On Monday, I will share the recipe for the indulgent Chocolate Mousse! Have a great weekend!
