When Lemon Is Not Enough

When Lemon Is Not Enough

When Lemon is not enough…

Some things sound so foreign until you try them out! Lemonade seems to fall in that category. Who would have thought that Lemonade was just a mix of some ripe mangoes, ginger, suagr and lemon juice in water! Ok, that’s a bit complex but it’s quite refreshing and hydrating, you should try.

Servings: 1 pitcher

Prep time: 1:15minutes


Ripe mangoes, 2 [peeled and flesh cut away from the stone and diced into small pieces]

Ginger, 1/4 inch [washed and cut into 2]

Sugar, 1 cup

Water , 6 cups

Lemon juice, 2 cups


  1.  In a large sauce pan, combine the mangoes, ginger, sugar and water and simmer for about 10 minutes stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool
  3. Strain mixture into a pitcher or jug and add the lemon juice
  4. Stir and taste. Add more water if mixture is too sweet or add a dash of vodka if it’s an adults-only drink
  5. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving

Tip: the variations are endless – jazz up by adding fruits of your choice and even herbs, for unexpected flavors.
