Summer Tropical Strawberry & Mango Lemonade

What I love about homemade lemonade is that you only need just a few ingredients. It does not require much, and you can get a refreshing beverage in no time. As a child, my grandmother would always whip up lemonade for us. Growing up in Guyana, we referred to lemonade as “SWANK”. Do not ask me where that name came from, I have no idea! But lemonade was always a go-to for when you needed a refreshing beverage.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can tweak the ingredients to your taste. If you like your lemonade more on the sweet side, add more sugar. If you do not like it too sweet, add LESS sugar. I would recommend adding your ingredients in segments then adjust according to your tastebuds.

When I make my lemonade, I always make it a little more on the sweet side because I know I will be adding tons of ice. Getting the correct ratio is important so that you do not end up with watered-down lemonade or diabetic lemonade, so add in portions.

Do hope you enjoy this recipe…CHEERS!
