Tropical Fizz Cocktail

Serve this fruity and fizzy cocktail at your next party or BBQ.

1 large mango, peeled, chopped
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup banana liqueur
750ml bottle sparkling white wine
1 cup ice cubes
Mint leaves, to decorate

1. Place mango flesh, juice and liqueur in a blender. Blend until pureed. Transfer to a large jug.

2. Just before serving, add ice cubes, mint and sparkling wine. Decorate with mint leaves.

For a change, replace banana liqueur with apricot, peach or orange liqueur. For a non-alcoholic version, replace sparkling wine with lemonade, mineral water or soda water. Mango mixture can be made up to a day ahead. Store, covered, in the fridge.
