Mango lemonade or limeade

Mango lemonade or mango limeade

En Español

This easy and simple refreshing mango lemonade or limeade is made with ripe mangoes, lemon or lime juice, sugar/honey, water, and ice. You can use either lemons or limes depending on your preference, or a mix of both. I am a citrus fan and used a decent amount for this drink, but you can adjust based on the amount of lemons/limes you have on hand. My husband could easily drink this without any added sugar, but I do like a little bit of sweetness so I add sugar or honey – the honey works great with the mango and citrus. I recommend adding some sugar/honey while blending the drink, then taste and adjust to your taste. [read more]

Spicy mango margaritas

Spicy mango and lime magaritas

These homemade spicy mango margaritas are made with spicy tequila, fresh mangoes, lime juice, orange liqueur, sugar, and ice. I was introduced to spicy infused drinks a few years ago when I tried a spicy passion fruit cocktail and have been hooked ever since on the combination of sour and spicy in cocktails. This spicy mango margarita gets its spiciness from using tequila infused with hot chili peppers, in this case serrano peppers. These days you can find a large variety of infused booze, in many different flavors including spicy peppers, at most liquor stores. However, it’s also very easy to make your own infused spicy tequila at home. Simply slice a few hot peppers (serranos, jalapenos or habaneros for an extra spicy version), place them in a bottle or airtight container with tequila, and let them infuse for 1-3 days – taste each day to see if the level of heat is where you want it. The infused tequila can get very very very spicy quickly, so do not let it infuse for too long – especially if using habaneros. [read more]
