Let’s talk summer drinks!
I don’t consume alcohol, but maybe a glass of wine here and there, so I love a fun summer beverage! Believe it or not, you can make a fab non alcoholic drink that’s so good, you won’t even be missing the booze! Homemade lemonades are my go to. Many don’t even have to be strained, like this new Jalapeno Mango Limeade!
When thinking of the next best flavor combo I knew we had to do mango! Mango is one of those fruits that never gets enough love and it absolutely makes a great lemonade. Rather than using traditional lemons, I feel this flavor paired better with lime. It was a total win!
Another spin I wanted to put on this recipe was to elevate it with some heat! Jalapeno simple syrup is a great way to add a fire kick to any beverage. Even if you’re sensitive to heat, it’s not overwhelming and really just enhances the flavor profile of the mango.
If you can find the canned puree option, which is at many random markets or even Amazon, you don’t even have to strain anything!
What’s great about this recipe? Everything. It’s quick, easy, sweet, packs heat, you can make it sugar free, it has a gorgeous color, notes of lime, a hint of heat, perfect for any season, aesthetic appeal, you can use lemons if desired you can mint to the mix to further enhance the flavor and if you’re feeling like an adult beverage, just throw in some alcohol.
If you’re craving a fun drink that doesn’t disappoint, you have to try my new Jalapeno Mango Limeade!
