Playing Carla Hall’s Mango Coconut Frappe

“I call this my adult frappe. Nope, it doesn’t’ have booze. But it’s got everything else you want in a drink: a little sweetness and creaminess topped off with fizzy bubbles. Even though it isn’t sugary, it has layers of flavors with tropical mango and coconut brightened by lime.” -Carla Hall
