Rachel of Coconut & Lime is celebrating her four year blogoversary! I not only love her blog, but I’ve gotten to know her a little bit through email, twitter, and the co-baking project we did together. She seems like a super nice person who I’ll hopefully get to meet one day.
To celebrate her blogoversy, she requested that people make either a recipe from her blog or a recipe with her signature ingredients (coconut and lime). I knew I wanted to participate, but I’ve been swamped so I didn’t think I would have time to make anything elaborate. I thought I was in luck when I saw that she had a recipe for mango lemonade – easy! Also, I just happened to have a bunch of leftover mangoes from the mango cupcakes that I coincidentally made for my own blogoversary.
As it turns out, it wasn’t as easy as I thought. I misread her recipe. It called for a ginger simple syrup and I just added some ginger. OOPS! The lemonade was insanely sour! Jonathan and I added a ton of sugar to it to try to make it better, but still the sourness was overpowering!
The recipe still sounds great if followed correctly, and I suggest you check it out over at Coconut & Lime – but be sure to read carefully!
I raise my sour glass to give an un-sour toast to Rachel for a blog well done!
