Muy refrescante, muy tropical. The bright sweetness of mangoes, when you can find them in good shape, is enhanced by the tang of the citrus. The combination will blow a Caribbean breeze your way when the weather is scorching. And speaking of scorching … adjust the cayenne pepper to your own tolerance for heat. I like mine muy caliente.
