Mango Margarita

Why, yes, I did just post a recipe for Watermelon Margaritas.  What can I say,  we are now in the middle of mango season!   Remember, you can always leave the alcohol out of this one, in which case, you could actually have it for breakfast!


Anyway, the response to the photo on our Facebook page was immense, so I thought I would share the recipe.

If you don’t have access to fresh mangos, frozen will work just as well, maybe even better.

Oh, just to give you fair warning…I found a recipe for “The Ultimate Margarita” which is actually lime based and includes making a tincture from Chile d’Arbol.   Once I have tried it, I will let you know all about it.

Mango Margaritas


3 large ripe mangoes, pit removed, peeled and cubed

1″ piece of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

1/4 cup simple syrup

1  cups water (plus more if needed)

1/2 oz cointreau

3 oz tequila

Tajin  for garnish

ice cubes for serving

Plunk everything in your blender, and puree until smooth.  Pour into 2 glasses, sprinkle with Tajin to taste and sit back and enjoy.
