Mango Margaritas


HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYBODY! 

This is the last recipe in our Mexican fiesta series, and we saved it for today because, well, it’s a Friday.  If ever there was a better time for Mango Margaritas than a Friday, this Friday to be exact, then I don’t know what it is.  What’s so special about today?  IT’S A FRIDAY!!  And, if you make Mango Margaritas, it will magically become Mango Margarita Friday!!!  Oooh yeah.  That’s what I’m talking about.  Whether you’re kicking off the weekend, or quelling the pain of another horrific work week, these frozen babies do the trick just fine.

Mango Margaritas

Makes just 1 cocktail, so unless you’re drowning your sorrows alone multiply by the number of guests.

  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 oz gold tequila
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz simple syrup (or 1 tsp sugar and 1 oz water)
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 1/4 lime

Rim the edge of a margarita glass with kosher salt.

In a blender, combine all of the ingredients except for the lime. 

Blend until it is combined and there are no big icy chunks to choke on. 

Squeeze in the juice of 1/4 lime, and give it another pulse to incorporate this in.

Pour into your rimmed margarita glass and garnish with a slice of lime.

I’ll be sipping this tonight to my current favourite Friday night song, Paper Planes by M.I.A. – but you owe it to yourself to never, ever watch the video.

    Found ya!! Ha.
    Mm. Mango margaritas. The appeal to me, besides the booze, is that mango pulp is just so… baby food! 😀

    Welcome, Cookiecrumb! I’m rather chuffed that you’re here – I feel like we have a celebrity in the house!

    You know, this is a first – somebody describes a comestible as having the consistency of baby food, but STILL thinks it is appealing. Ah, see? That’s what I admire about you.

    Thanks, Gammypie! I can’t see how any weekend that starts off with margaritas can be a bad one 😉

    Not choking is definitely a good thing! The drink sounds like dessert to me. Bring it on!
