Chili Lime Mango Intermeggo

Recently, I attended a wedding. A very fancy wedding. 

Located smack dab in the middle of Philly. Which put me in survival mode right away (I get lost and stressed while driving in cities very easily). My poor boyfriend probably thought I was psycho as I screamed for the millionth time at the GPS for telling me to go the wrong way on a one-way :/

Poor him. And my poor blood pressure. 


Once we (finally) arrived, the rest of the evening was nice:

No longer psycho!

No longer psycho!

And of course, like everybody at a wedding, I was mainly interested in the food 🙂 

As we looked at our mini menu, we saw the word “intermeggo,” under which it simply said “Chili Lime Mango.” After pondering with our fellow dining mates, someone finally took out their cell phone and looked it up. 

So, new vocabulary word! Intermeggo is a break between courses at a fancy dinner party in which a small palette cleanser is dished out. And the “Chili Lime Mango” ended up being a bright sunny liquid in a small shot glass. 

And I gulped it down and wanted more. 

It had a very tropical and unique taste to it. Not to mention a little spicy kick in the end. 

Worthy enough for a copycat recipe- served in bigger glasses this time! 

Granted, it’s not exactly the same taste (I only had “chili” “lime” and “mango” to go off of), but it’s still tasty and cleansing enough to serve at home dinner parties 🙂
