“Hamanasi Mango Sangria”

Mango season is here once again and King is exploring many ways on how to enjoy them.   You got to try out his Mango Sangria.  The following are the ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup lime squash concentrate
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup triple sec
  • 1 ripe mango, medium dice
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
  • 1 orange, sliced into rounds
  • 1 lime, sliced into rounds
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (optional)
  • 8 maraschino cherries
  • 2 cups carbonated water (optional)

In a large pitcher or bowl, mix together the brandy, lemon juice, lime squash, orange juice, red wine, triple sec, and sugar. Float slices of mango, pineapple, lime, orange, and maraschino cherries in the mixture. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor. For a fizzy sangria, add club soda just before serving.

Travel Adventurers + Friday Happy Hour Drink Special = “Belizean Passion”

In April of 2006 travelers Karen Catchpole (writer) and Eric Mohl (photographer) left their jobs and apartment in New York City and embarked on the Trans-Americas Journey, a five year, 200,000 mile cross-country and cross-continental drive.

Eric & Karen's Trans-Americas Journey

The overland journey is an exploration of the byways and back roads of North America, Central America and South America and a search for the people, places and things that make every place special. A true Pan-American road trip. In December of 2008 the Trans-Americas Journey wrapped up its time in the US and Canada and crossed the border into Mexico where Karen and Eric will spend the coming months exploring, shooting and writing before venturing further south through Latin America until they run out of road.

They have now found their way to Hamanasi!  Welcome Karen and Eric… and enjoy the “Belizean Passion”!

1 oz. Watermelon Pucker Liquor

1/2 oz. Peach Schnapps

1 oz Light Rim

1/2 oz Ameretto

1 oz Fresh Lime Juice

1 1/2 oz Fresh Orange Juice

Blend with ice, garnish with orange slice and enjoy!

Hamanasi wishes Eric and Karen safe travels and outstanding adventures on their journey!
