While I was searching for mango lemonade there were many recipes with just mixing the mango pulp and lemon juice with sugar. But when I saw this recipe with making sugar syrup at Red Chillies, I loved the idea so went ahead making it the same day. Refreshing drink for this summer and this is my first post this mango season :) You can check the other mango recipes here.
While serving add cold water and ice cubes as required to the mango lemon concentrate and serve chilled
Method:1.Squeeze lemon and extract the juice, discard the seeds.Collect the juice in a bowl.Keep aside. In a heavy bottomed vessel add sugar.
2.Then add water and stir continuously till sugar dissolves and it will start bubbling , allow it to boil till a single string consistency is reached(very thin string is enough). Switch off and cool down completely.
3. Blend mangoes to get a thick pulp(dont add water). Once the sugar syrup is completely cooled add the mango pulp to it, then add lemon juice to it.
- I am really not sure of the shelf life but ours kept well for 3 days and by then our mango lemonade was over :)
- Make sure you cool the sugar syrup completely before adding mango pulp and lemon juice.
