GREEN MANGO LEMONADE! THE INCREDIBLE ONE! I always try to explore various traditional drinks whenever I travel. Particularly during summer when people prefer to drink carbonated drinks over other traditional drinks but I prefer to try different local drinks which are mostly made of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Nowadays you can see various shake and juice corners in each city where you can try those. But the taste of home made traditional drinks are absolutely different. The most special drink I have tasted in my life is Kokum sharbat because during those days I have no idea about such fruit named Kokum or kokum. We tasted this in Malvan, Maharashtra. It is small town located on the sea side of Maharashtra. Malvan is truly unexplored tourist spot with a huge opportunity. Though one or two hotels are there, people mostly prefer home-stay there. It is because it is cheaper and you will get the opportunity to stay near beaches. Food served by them were good and poha with grated coconut and farsan was mostly served in breakfast. They even added grated coconut in non-vegetarian main course food. Some local village people also offered us kokum drinks, we tried that and found it was a great refreshing drink. Then they told us to buy some dried kokum fruits and they cracked the DEAL.
Okay now coming to the topic which is about green mango lemonade. I never tried any of such green mango lemonade except that aam panna sharbat ( a drink made of burnt green mango pulp and sugar). But once I made this super refreshing summer drink and liked this more than any other lemon water or lemonade. Though here I did not add soda water but still it taste excellent and very nice. It kills BOREDOM during hot days and makes summer more enjoyable.
Green mango lemonade is different from any other lemonade or lemon water. It takes a time to bring perfect taste. You need to refrigerate boiled green mango water. You do not need to use a large quantity of green mango because here you are just using it flavor and bringing little thickness in your drink. So blend green mango in a mixer grinder and then boil in water for 5 minutes. Once it starts boiling then switch off the fire and add pure honey to this boiling mango water and mix honey within that water. Rest it for 10 minutes and refrigerate it for two hours. Now add lemon juice and sugar to the drink and mix properly with a hand blender. Now you have done with this green mango lemonade. So just add some crushed ice (if you want) to your glass and pour green mango lemonade and enjoy.
