Summertime has arrived and on a hot and humid day, it is likely that you will crave a nice, refreshing dose of lemonade at some point. If you’re not in the mood to squeeze a bunch of lemons to make real lemonade, this recipe is the absolute best alternative which involves mango nectar and my personally approved store bought lemonade. The brand Simply Lemonade is, by far, the leading store bought lemonade with no mention of corn syrup in its ingredients. The only drawback is that it is extremely sugary, which provides lots of culinary opportunity to add ice and mango nectar to water it down but still capitalize on the mango for its natural sweetness.
- 1 fresh lemon, peeled
- 2 cups Simply Lemonade
- 1 cup mango nectar
- 3 cups ice
- Store wide-rimmed glasses in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
- Using a paring knife, peel lemon and cut in quarters. Remove seeds.
- Combine prepared lemon, lemonade, mango nectar and ice in blender. Blend until desired texture is achieved.
