Wash mango really well. Cut a couple of slices for garnishing and set aside. Peel the rest and chop it.
Wash the habanero pepper and cut 4 very thin slices. Be careful, habanero pepper is extremely spicy, don’t touch your face or anything else while working with them and wash your hands immediately after. Make sure there are no seeds in the slices. Wash your work surface and knife afterward. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker or a big, flat bottomed cup, squeeze 4 lime wedges into the cup and throw the skins in after, add Truvía Cane Sugar Blend, mint, 2 thin slices of habanero pepper, and the peeled mango.
Using a muddler or the back end of a wooden spoon crush them together to release the mint, lime, and habanero oils.
Pour in rum, mango nectar and sparkling water. Mix well.
Pour the mojito mix into two prepared glasses with ice, more fresh mint, lime wedges and slices of mango, if you like. If you want it spicier, add one more thin slice of habanero pepper to each glass as well.
