A tasty riff on the mojito, this gorgeous cocktail adds tropical flavors to the traditional rum-based drink. Puréed mango brings a lush texture and rounded fruit flavor, while store-bought passionfruit juice introduces a clean and refreshing tartness; a sprinkle of specialty coconut-sea salt over the ice cubes adds crunch and balance.
