I’ve been on a serious homemade lemonade kick lately. There’s just no comparison to store-bought lemonade. I’ve made a lot of different versions like blueberry, cherry, peach, and strawberry just to name a few! It’s so much fun to experiment with new flavor combos! And now, we’ve got tropical lemonade!
This homemade tropical lemonade really couldn’t be easier. There’s no syrups to make, it’s just squeezing some lemons and mixing in pineapple juice and mango nectar! I didn’t think this lemonade needed any additional sweetener aside from the juice and mango nectar, but you can always add sweetener of your choice if desired. Like most homemade lemonades, you can customize it anyway you want! As you can see by the ingredients, I listed ranges for the pineapple juice and the water. Feel free to add more or less depending on how sweet you want your lemonade to be!
And after you have it all mixed up, go sit outside on lounge chair and pretend you are on a gorgeous beach somewhere with a little umbrella and maybe some rum too. Did I mention you can totally rum this lemonade up for adults? Yeah, I totally recommend that too! Oh, and I think a splash of coconut milk would be fabulous too! I am going to pretend I’m on vacation with a pitcher of this tropical lemonade instead of packing up our house to move next week!
