This has been one HOT summer! I don’t know about you, but this heat makes me thirsty. Like ” Sally-on up to the horse trough thirsty!
I wish I could tell y’all that I’m this huge water drinker…but I don’t wanna lie to y’all. I do manage to get down a few tall glasses of ice-cold water a day. (I like to call it guilt serum!!) Truth be told…I just want a “purty “flavorful drink. Something that stands tall and cool… and demands your attention!
Like this Ah-mazing Mango Strawberry Lemonade! I’ve been dreaming about creating this drink for weeks now. I’m so happy that all my dreams came true with this tall drink of lusciousness! (Why am I suddenly thinking of Tom Selleck? Hmmm? lol)
I have a secret tip for y’all. Get ready…this is a biggie!
TIP: Fruit Flavored Daiquiri/Margarita mixers!!!
That’s right friends. Drink mixers are not just for “alcoholic” drinks! If you’re looking to add fruity flavor to anything…from drinks to sauces…drink mixers! Shhhhh…it’s my BIG cooking cheat! (That’s right! Go hang out in the drink mixer aisle and have your neighbors gossip about what a lush you are! lol)
The key is to find a REALLY good drink mixer. I LOVE Master of Mixes. (This is not a sponsored post! They’re getting all this wonderful advertising FREE…cause I’m a rocking business woman! lol)
I did not do step-by-step photo’s for this one because it is just too easy and I have faith you can whip this up in about 5 minutes!
In a tall pitcher add one 12 oz. can frozen lemonade and 3 cans of water. I know, I know. The directions on the can call for 4 1/3 cans of water. We’re gonna be massive rebels and not do that! (Gasp! It the drink mixers…were going all Thelma and Louise!)
Add 1 cup of Mango Daiquiri/Margarita Mix. (If you want a stronger Mango flavor…add a little more. Go Crazy!)
Add in 1 cup of thawed frozen sliced strawberries with sugar. They come in a 15.5 oz container and can be found in the frozen fruit aisle.
Mix that all together. Add 2 cups of crushed ice. Garnish with Lemon, fresh mango slices, and sprigs of fresh mint!
TIP: If it’s too tart add a little water and an additional spoonful of strawberries. I like mine with a little “zing”.
If you like a little “fizz” in your drink…you can change things up by adding sparkling mineral water. I’m not a huge fan of mineral water by itself. (This is a MAJOR understatement! GAG ME!) If you’re gonna add it…make it international…so ya feel special! lol
Fill the glass 3/4 the way full of mango strawberry lemonade and top the glass off with sparkling mineral water.
Garnish you glasses with a lemon slice or a strawberry.
Now take your beautiful spectacular drink, go out on the porch, put your shades on, throw your flip-flops off, wiggle your toes, close your eyes…imagine the beach and take a nice long sip of tropical happiness! Ahhhhhh! Sigh…You’re welcome!
