Mango Peel in Cocktails
In an effort to be more eco-friendly when it comes to mangos, we’re trying to using the whole fruit in our dishes! First up – using the peel. Some folks can be allergic to mango skin, so we recommend ensuring you or your friends don’t have any allergies before trying these recipes. If you find that you do, have a non-allergic friend slice your mango and try composting the peel instead.
Unless you’re pickling mangos, you likely won’t be eating the peel. But it can be used as a beautiful garnish on drinks. Leave the peel on your sliced mangos for a fun hint of red, orange or green, in addition to that bright yellow mango flesh.
