The only thing better than mango lemonade is Boozy Mango Lemonade. While vodka is commonly used to spike lemonade, I went with a reposado tequila to give it a Mexican twist. I mean, can you ever go wrong with tequila?
1 mango 1 lime 1 lemon ½ cup sugar Reposado tequila Club soda
Mango and citrus is one of my favorite combinations. Have you ever had fresh mango with a lime juice and chili powder? Yum! It is to die for, really. Check out my How-To section for tips on cutting a mango, it will save you a lot of time.
Cut a large mango into chunks, and add them to a small saucepan. Add the juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime. Add in 1/2 cup of sugar, and warm the mixture over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Transfer the mix to a blender and puree until super smooth. Transfer the puree to the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, just to remove any heat.
Fill a highball glass with 3 ounces of the mango puree and 1 ounce reposado tequila, stir. Add in some ice and top off with club soda. Garnish with a lime wheel.
