Fresh mango is fantastic. It’s lightly sweet, and its tropical flavor can instantly transport you to a relaxing place. Put that in a margarita and you have a winner!
This delightful fresh mango margarita will pair equally well with spicy food on Cinco de Mayo or a lovely brunch or picnic on Mother’s Day. I may just do both … it’s that good.
- 3 oz mango puree, about one mango
- 1 ½ oz tequila blanco
- ¼ oz Grand Marnier or triple sec
- 1 oz fresh orange juice
- ¼oz fresh lime juice
Peel the mango. Slice the fruit and put it into a blender of food processor. Discard the skin and the pit. Run the blender until the fruit is thoroughly mashed and juicy. Meanwhile, juice the orange and lime. In a cocktail shaker, combine all the ingredients and the ice. Shake hard to integrate. Remove the lid from the shaker (carefully—it can be messy) and pour all, including the ice, into a glass. Garnish with a lime twist if desired.
