ZOOM Cooking Class! (Summer Mango Quenchers)

June 21, 2024

A Crespo Organic Kitchen Cooking Class

Class Description: In this class, you’ll learn how to make thirst-quenching summer mango drinks out of this summer’s bounty of mangoes! Here we will teach you how to whip up our favorite mango thirst-quenchers, perfect on a hot summer’s day. We’ll teach you how to prepare a light fruit-herb fermentation, how to add spice for depth, how to utilize coconut water for maximum hydration, how to create a mango pit syrup for iced tea, and we’ll show you our famous Mango-schino Cherry recipe. This class will demonstrate that you don’t need alcohol to have a good drink. In fact, nonalcoholic drinks can be more refreshing, more hydrating and less depleting of vitamins than alcoholic beverages; not to mention, they won’t make you sleepy in the heat. All of our classes will provide some basic mango education, such as how to choose, store and cut mangoes and a little bit about mango varietal nuances, as well! We’ll also discuss how to pick and choose your flavor pairings and potencies.

Recipes to be Made: (Lightly) Fermented Mango-Peach Herbal Punch; Mango-Lime Coconut Fizz; Sparkling Cherry-Limeade sweetened with Mango Pit Syrup, Mango-schino Cherry Garnish; Rose & Mango Earl Grey Iced Tea
