Mango Margaritas!

This is an incredibly simple drink and mango is in season here in Florida. I figured I’d honor our local bounty and make something really fresh (like from the tree in our backyard) and that’s sure to please. We typically collect our mango as they’re available and peel and then freeze the flesh in 16 ounce containers.

Place the frozen fruit into your trusty blender with or without tequila (one ounce per person is my rule), 1 cup of orange juice and juice from half a lime. Before you pour your beverage, you’ll want to coat the rim of your beverage receptacle with salt. There are 2 ways to do this. I recommend using fine sea salt but ordinary table salt is fine. You’ll gently dip the lip of your glass into your margarita and then into a bowl of salt OR rub the other half of that lime around the edge of that glass and then do the same with the bowl of salt.

  1. I would love to add tequila: yes, please! 🙂 That would be so great to have ripe mangoes in your own garden! Cool! 🙂
    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! A great & tasty entry for the VVP! I agree!

    • Truly, we are really lucky. Usually there’s enough for me to share with friends which is my favorite part.

      • amazing, wish I could plant one in my backyard, but there’s no way it would survive the Utah winters 🙁

  2. It is past mango season for us, but I have made sure that I have some containers filled with mango in the freezer for a special occasion. I think mango margaritas may be a good enough reason to use it. Thank you for the idea.

  3. It’s probably a good thing I don’t have a mango tree in my backyard because I would always have a mango marg in my hand. Still, I’m totally jealous that you get to enjoy them fresh-with or without alcohol 🙂
