Servings 4 Servings
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 ripe mangoes (or enough to make 1 cup mango pulp)
- 1 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
- 2 cups chilled water
In a sauce pot, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer, stirring regularly, until sugar is dissolved and syrup is clear and no longer cloudy. Remove the simple syrup from heat and allow to cool completely.
Slice mangoes and scoop flesh, discarding pit and skin. In a blender or food processor, process mangoes until smooth.
In a pitcher, combine mango pulp, lemon juice, simple syrup and the 2 cups chilled water. Stir well.
To serve, pour into glasses over ice. Garnish with sliced limes or lemons and fresh mint sprigs, if desired.
