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 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.
First, 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.
