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.

  1. This looks like the perfect summer cocktail! I love how smooth you got the ice–that’s always an issue for me.

  2. So interesting, mangoes are probably my favourite fruit, especially a few key varieties! Love the look of this mango margherita!

    1. Thank you Kavey. I wonder if it’s because I’m in the Boston area of the US, not many fresh mangos here, other than getting them from other parts of the world.

  3. I have always loved mangoes and could eat anything with mango in it. The weekend is almost here so bring on the mango margarita!! Yummy

  4. I can’t believe you’re not that keen on mangoes! They’re one of my favourite fruits, this looks like a fab recipe

  5. This margarita does look marvelous! This is the perfect recipe to end the day with! I can’t wait to try this.

  6. Such a wonderful margarita, so original with mangoes, I’m craving for one now, Cheers! If you are drinking it alone, we say you are drinking like a Swiss, it means that you forgot to fill the glasses of your guests 😀

    1. LOL Patty! I never do that. I always fill my guests glasses first. I may sometimes take the biggest portion, but can you blame me? 😉
