1 large ripe mango, sliced

¾ cup chilled white cranberry juice

1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

2 tablespoons superfine sugar

½ ounce simple syrup

1 wedge mango, for garnish

1 strawberry, for garnish

Ice cubes

In a blender, combine mango, cranberry juice, lime juice, sugar, and simple syrup; blend until the mixture is smooth. Add ice cubes and blend until the daiquiri is smooth and thick. Pour into glasses and serve with a fruit garnish.

*Chef's Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Cool, pour it into a jar, cover, and chill.
