Mango Margarita

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Are you making Mexican food tonight?  If you are, or even if you’re not, I have the perfect adult beverage to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

A Mango Margarita!

It’s light and refreshing.  And, it is contributing to your daily fruit intake, right?  Of course it is, so it is good for you too.  I have officially decided this is my new go to spring drink!  I first had one of these bad boys when my family and I stayed at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ.

Mango Margarita mango chunks

I finally decided to try and make a mango margarita at home when I saw Trader Joe’s had frozen cut up mango chunks.  I have such a hard time cutting fresh mangos, so these frozen chunks are the perfect solution, and since you don’t need to add ice because the chunks are frozen, you don’t have to worry about your drink getting all watered down!  The frozen mango chunks make this margarita deliciously smooth and creamy.

 Because the mango chunks are frozen, you can make these scrumptious drinks all year long along.

Make this margarita’s with a few of my favorite Mexican dishes.

Shredded Beef Taquitos


Pulled Pork for a great burrito filling

Mango Margarita
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 lime, juice
  • 1 Package of Trader Joe's Mango Chunks
  • ¾ Cup of Tequila
  • ¾ Cup of Triple Sec or any orange flavored liqueur
  • ⅓ Cup sugar
  1. On a small plate, place the 1 tablespoon of sugar and the 1 tablespoon of salt and mix together.
  2. Once you have squeezed all the juice out of the lime, run the inside of the lime around the rim of your margarita glass and dip the glass into the sugar/salt combination. Set the glass aside.
  3. In a blender place the mango chunks, lime juice, tequila, triple sec and sugar. Blend until completely smooth. Taste to make sure it is to your liking {add more tequila if needed} and then pour it in to your sugar/salt rimmed glass!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
