Do you know what I love most about summer? Mangoes! My grandfather used to be an expert in selecting the best mangoes from our neighborhood bazaar and he could go on and on talking about the different varieties available, the difference in taste etc. For him, Alphonso was undoubtedly the King of Mangoes and he used to be quite sad coz we don’t get it in Kolkata. If my grandfather was here now, he would have sent a thank you note to Tropicana Slice because they have got the King to us. Ratnagiri’s best and juiciest Alphonsoes have been handpicked to make the new Tropicana Slice Alphonso drink.
I’ve always been a Tropicana Slice fan and any drink which has mangoes tops my favorites list. What I like about the new Tropicana Slice Alphonso is of course the taste. Rich, smooth, thick and not too sweet. I also like the fact that it does not taste artificial or synthetic. Yes, there are preservatives etc but they don’t spoil the taste.
You can use the Tropicana Slice Alphonso to make a lot of good things like smoothies, lassi, milk shakes, mocktails, cocktails etc. Just use your imagination and let go! To spice up the drink instantly, I love adding a sliced green chilli in my glass. If you have recipes that can be made with the drink, do share in the comments below.
Tropicana Slice Alphonso is priced at Rs 50 for 600 ml.
