A few weekends ago I had my family here for a visit and decided to make something special after we ate dinner. Instead of serving dessert, we enjoyed lively conversations and drinks. There's nothing better than sipping on a chilled drink on a hot summer night surrounded by loved ones.
1 3/4 cups white sugar
8 cups water
2 cups fresh squeezed lime juice
3 mangoes, peeled and pitted
mangoes, peeled and pitted
puree the mangoes
juice the limes
In a pitcher combine ingredients, stir together until sugar is dissolved.
Serve chilled or on ice.
It also makes an excellent cocktail with the addition of gin.
