Bright tropical mango and fresh squeezed orange juice are puréed together to make a quick base for this exotic brunch drink. You can refrigerate unused portion of the mango-orange purée in an airtight container for up to one week. Ripe Ataulfo (or Champagne) mangos are best, but you can also use frozen mango pieces, thawed.
