Summer Sun Lemonade

Nothing is quite as refreshing as a tall glass of lemonade on a  sunny summer afternoon.
Here’s my spin on the classic:

Summer Sun Lemonade:


  • freshly squeezed pulp of a ripe mango (if you don’t get mangoes in your country, substitute with mango juice)
  • juice of 2-3 lemons (depending on the size and sourness you like) 
  • mint leaves
  • sugar to taste
  • 1 litre of cold water (substitute with soda if you want a spritzer feel)


  • Blend all the ingredients, start with lesser lemon and sugar, increasing slowly according to your preference of sweet and sourness. 
  • Top with ice and add mint leaves just before serving. If you’re using mango juice from a carton, but enjoy a pulpy texture, you can add the pulp of an orange to the mango juice for the similar effect.
  • As an option to turn this into a light refreshing alcoholic drink for a party, i would recommend adding either Malibu Coconut rum for those who like a sweeter twist, and for those who shy away from sweet things, Gin of any brand you prefer. Cheers!
