My marvelous mango margarita recipe is so frosty and delicious you will want to run to the store to buy a mango!
Mangos and Me
Do I love mangos?
No. I don’t.
Do I like mangos? Sort of. I’ve grown to like them.
The three fruits that I’m not fond of are mangos, persimmons and papayas. I think it is because they are too sweet for me.
But, as I’ve been talking about my tastes changing through the years, I think they are changing also regarding these fruits. At least they have for mangos. I had some mango recently before I even knew that it was mango.
Imagine the surprise on my face: eyes wide, mouth open in a perfect “O”, hands slapped on cheeks.
I stammer, “B-b-b-but, I don’t like mangos.”
I blink rapidly as I look at that fruit that used to offend my very existence.
What else do I like that I used to loathe? I can’t wait to figure that out.
Even if I didn’t like mangos, pair the fruit with tequila, Cointreau and some lime and you’ve got a winning cocktail. So let’s do this!
The ingredients for the Marvelous Mango Margarita and the Mixing
We have some Patron Silver tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, simple syrup and mango!
First thing I do is get my blender container and measure in 2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce Cointreau, 1 ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice and 1/2 ounce simple syrup.
Note: If your mango is super sweet, you may not need the simple syrup. My mango was not sweet so I opted for some simple syrup.
Now I measure out a heaping 1/2 cup of mango.
Into the blender it goes with the other ingredients! I also added approximately 1 1/2 cups of ice.
I attach my blender to the base and blend away!
I grab my massive margarita glass and pour the mango margarita in it. I also garnish this delicious cocktail with 3 chunks of mango.
See how happy that little doll looks!? She’s peeking around the glass to show you her glee!
Now, let’s look at a vertical view.
Melting fast because of the high temperatures here in Massachusetts!
