This is a completely inappropriate post for Monday, I know. But then when have I ever been the kinds to tow the line and play by any rules? And who says Monday doesn't deserve a drink? Monday is all the more reason to have one, in fact . I've just had a wonderful weekend in Mangalore where I could put my feet up, read a book and sip coffee while watching the rain paint everything a bright green. And then I got back, to an empty house, reminded of the fact that Denver's away. While I'm not turning to drinking, I'm reminded of this sharp, spicy and slightly sweet cocktail we spent one afternoon perfecting. This Tall Mango Jalapeno Fizzy Cocktail is going to lift your spirits and will be your perfect Sunday brunch companion once you give it a try.

In fact try the Sparkling Cucumber Chili Gin while you are at it. They can both be made in pitchers and passed around the table. You're going to love how both of them spike up a dull day. They're a perfect reason to celebrate Sundays, or in my case Mondays.
The Jalapenos are steeped in White Rum for a few hours so that the rum has a spicy kick, and then the whole thing is sweetened with Mango juice. Can you just imagine the MIND BLOWING flavors?
This recipe is more a guide, so that you can adjust the alcohol and sweetness to your taste. We loved this ratio, but feel free to improvise. And tell us what you think. This is more Denver's concoction than mine, and I know he'd love to read your comments on Facebook and Twitter
