The Mangoosteeni

Mangoosteen are an unusual looking tropical fruit with a thick, purple skin and soft, sweet white flesh, similar in taste to a lychee.

In order to make a martini out of them, I followed a very simple formula similar to a Lychee Martini.

Take a tin of mangoosteen (you can find them in specialist Asian supermarkets), then make the martini as follows (you can alter it to taste):

1 dash sweet vermouth
3 measures of gin or vodka
3 measures of mangoosteen syrup
Mangoosteen pieces on a toothpick to garnish

It’s sweet and not as strong as a full martini.

Did I mention I love mangoosteens?

You could even have them as an accompaniment to a normal martini.
