FOODIE FRIDAY: Spicy Mango Lemonade



I had a Spicy Mango Lemonade at Café Carmen the other day. It was sooo good I had to try to recreate it for myself at home! Tasted just like the “real thing” :) … I did a video yesterday but Jackson is being a little clingy these days so he insisted on sitting on my lap. lol



Lemonade (homemade or store bought)

Mango Nectar or Purée (homemade or store bought)

Red Cayenne Pepper

Mint for garnish



Fill glass with ice. Add half or less mango nectar, half lemonade. Sometimes it’s a little too sweet or concentrated so you can add water. Garnish with mint and voila! Spicy Mango Lemonade! Life’s Swell…

    Wait. What happened to the Cayenne pepper? Is it a garnish or does it get mixed in?

    Looks delicious! I think Jackson’s getting older so he misses you when you’re gone on trips. Maybe that’s why he is clingy.
