The Ngolo Cocktail is an African-Inspired beverage that brings forth the flavors of West Africa. There are multiple variations on the ingredients. So, we chose a recipe that is easy to duplicate with what is readily available in our market.

The Ngolo is reminiscent of a Moscow Mule—but with a special Ngolo’s touch. The African Ngolo Cocktail is a must-try for anyone who loves a good cocktail and wants to experience a new twist. It stands alone at cocktail hour and pairs well with African recipes.
