Two games down in the 2017 NBA Finals and both wins go to the Golden State Warriors. If I were a betting woman I would say that LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t going to let the Golden State Warriors off that easily for these NBA Finals as the reigning champions. Last week I kicked off my NBA Finals themed cocktails with the Sangrialier and also let it be known that I will be rooting for a Cleveland series win. Although it’s a rough start, I still stand by my pick because…Kevin Love (hubba, hubba!) For those of you who are set on a West Coast sweep, today’s mocktail will totally be your jam. Being 5 1/2 months pregnant, I wanted to incorporate a drink that you can serve at your NBA Finals watch party that anyone can sip on during the game so I created this “Golden State of Mind Mango Lemonade”.
The Golden State of Mind Mango Lemonade is deliciously refreshing and perfect for these warm NBA Finals games nights. Not just your typical lemonade, but the golden fruit of the mango makes this cocktail perfect to rep your team if you are entertaining a few Golden State fans for a watch party.
- 2 cups Mango Chunks (about 2 fresh mangoes)
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 12 oz. water
- 1-2 tsp raw honey (optional)
- Blend all ingredients in a blender. You may need to add more water to achieve the lemonade consistency that you desire.
- Divide blended mixture evenly between two large glasses.
- Add ice and enjoy!
This recipe is super easy and a quick mocktail to whip up even if you have an impromptu NBA Finals watch party that you arrange on the day of the game.
