Fresh Mango Lemonade
Mango lends a luscious and elegant dimension to fresh lemonade, and a dash of Angostura bitters underscores the sweet tartness of the drink. This perfect spring or summer refresher from Ayesha Curry is delicious as-is, but you could certainly spike it with vodka or a complementary liqueur for a sunny, vibrant cocktail. The recipe calls for honey mangoes, also commonly labeled as Ataúlfo or Champagne mangoes, a smaller, bright golden-yellow variety from Mexico.

- 1 honey mango, peeled, pitted, and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 teaspoon bitters, such as Angostura
1In a blender, blend the mango, 1/4 cup of the sugar, and a splash of water until smooth. This will make the purée for the lemonade.
2In a pitcher, combine the 4 cups water, lemon juice, bitters, and remaining 1/2 cup of sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Mix in the mango purée.
3Serve over ice in tall glasses.
