Mango Lemonade Drink

Oh how I love a refreshing drink on a hot summer day.  We have a little over a month before the first day of fall and I think we need to guzzle up all of the invigorating drinks before then.  Now, I hope you don’t think that you can’t enjoy these drinks in the fall too?  You can certainly add them to your upcoming Football Season Menu and serve them at your parties.

Today I’m sharing a Mango Lemonade Drink.  It’s quick, easy and all you need is a few ingredients.

You’ll need:

1 Can Sliced Mangoes (I placed mine in the freezer so that they would be nice and FROZEN)

1 Can Concentrated Lemonade Juice

A few sprigs of mint (Optional)

3 Cans of Water (Use the lemonade can)

1 Cup sugar (or add to taste if you’d like less sugar)

First we’re going to start off by adding our 1 Can of concentrated lemonade to our pitcher.

Next, were going to add our frozen mangoes and after we’ve added the mangoes, it’s time to added our 3 cans of water.

Stir everything well and now is your time to add in your sugar.  You’re going to stir it in before you begin to add the sprigs of mint if you choose to do so.  Stir everything in well and we’re going to place the drink in the fridge for 2-3 hours or more.  You may also decide to do this the day before an event or for dinner the following day.  The great thing about adding the mango and the mint and letting them set for hours, both get a chance to infuse the drink and give it a rich Mango Lemonade flavor with that hint of mint.

Once your drink has chilled either overnight or a few hours we’re going to remove it from the fridge.Since the drink has sat we’ll need to stir it up again before serving.

Let’s get ready to fill those glasses and share this refreshing drink with our love ones, family or friends.  Lemonade is one of our families favorite drinks, so I enjoy putting a twist on it whenever I can.  Hope your family and friends enjoy the Mango Lemonade as much as we have this summer.  Don’t forget, you can always add this to your Fall, Winter or Spring menu too. Enjoy
