Notes
The sourness of raw mangoes varies from one mango to the other.
So use the measurements given here as a starting point, even I use different measurement for every lot i make.

Some people dislike the raw mango pulp in their drink, you can strain the pulp after mixing it if you wish.

Although water is simple and healthy, at times simple club soda or spriye can turn this into a fun brunch mocktail..
