1 inch Ginger Root, peeled and sliced
1 cup Frozen Mango- fresh is fine too
To peel the ginger use the back of a spoon or a vegetable peeler, just peel the part that you will be using.
Using a sharp knife slice ginger into 3-4 coin sized slices.
You want them about the size and thickness of the coin.
Drop into your pitcher and add in the mango.
Top with 3 cups of ice and then add with water.(the ice is important, it holds down the ginger and mango to help infuse the water)
Place in your fridge for 1-3 hours before serving.
When serving add a couple frozen mango chunks in a pretty glass for ice cubes.
This will keep in the fridge for 24 hours.
You can use fresh or frozen mango, I like frozen because I don’t have to cut and it is always picked at the peak of the season and frozen so if I can’t get mangoes in season I can still always have some in the house.
Plus they are like little ice cubes here, fun!
I highly recommend you use fresh ginger, the powdered just does not taste the same and will clump in your water.
