Nothing says summer like a great cocktail with the season’s hottest fruit, mango. Check out these New York City favorites:

Brick Lane Curry House’s Mango Mojito ($10)

306-308 E. Sixth St., 212-979-8787

When stopping by Brick Lane Curry House be prepared for two things: an extensive list of traditional Indian cuisine and a great mango mojito. The restaurant, whose title was inspired by the historic London block, prides itself on its “English-Indian” menu selections and various cocktail choices. Their signature mango mojito features Bacardi rum combined with fresh mango puree, mint, sugar and lime.

Taco Shop’s Mango Margarita ($12)

166 W. Fourth St., 212-675-1955

Margaritas are a staple drink to combine with Mexican food. However, Taco Shop’s mango flavored margarita takes things a step further by mixing Herradura tequila, agave nectar, fresh-squeezed lime juice and mango infusion with a fine pastry extraction. The drink is topped off with a classic salt rim; a perfect addition to one of the Taco Shop’s nine different types of tacos. Can’t decide which one floats your boat? Try three different tacos plus a mango margarita or beer for $12, Monday through Friday from 3 to 7 p.m.

Jeepney’s Subic Bay Mocktail ($5)

201 First Ave., 212-533-4121

Who says your drink has to require booze to be amazing? Filipino restaurant Jeepney certainly doesn’t think so. Its Subic Bay mocktail combines mango, grenadine, chili pepper and club soda for a sweet and slightly spicy mix.

Pig and Khao’s Sangria ($10)

68 Clinton St., 212-920-4485

Another Filipino joint, Pig and Khao, is the place to be for some upgraded barbecue and a summer spin on a cocktail classic. Wash down your meat — everything from pork head to lamb ribs — with the classic sangria, which includes red wine, pineapple, green mango, papaya assam skin and various spices.
