With Cinco de Mayo this Thursday, it is only right that we share our favorite margarita recipe with you all!
It is beyond delicious and so simple and customizable. We hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating and ¡Salud!
Tequila! [3oz or depending on desired strength of marg]
Obviously this is a must have unless you are making a mocktail!
Juice! [1 cup]
This is my favorite to use because it isn’t very heavy but super delicious. You can totally use regular orange juice too!
Frozen or fresh mango! [2 1/2 cups of frozen mango or 2 ripe mangos cubed]
Now, this is a super important ingredient as these are mango margaritas. I always have frozen mango on hand as it is one of my favorite snacks, but fresh works awesome too! If you use fresh mango you will need ice to add to the blender.
Limes & Hot Sauce! [2-3 small limes//dash of hot sauce]
You will need the juice of two limes for the blending of the margarita and one half of a lime to use for the rim and garnish. The hot sauce is optional. I love a little kick, but adding the hot sauce in is totally up to you!
Sea Salt (or Sugar) & Chili Powder! [1 tsp chili powder// 1 tsp sea salt]
These ingredients are for the rim and you can use salt or substitute sugar if you like a sweeter rim!
- Add all the ingredients, except the chili powder and sea salt to the blender and blend until smooth. If you choose to use fresh mango, make sure and add a handful of ice cubes to the blender. Taste and adjust sweetness/alcohol strength. If you prefer your marg sweeter add some extra mango or even some agave syrup!
2. Use a wedge of the third lime and rim the edges of your glasses. Immediately dip the glass rims into the chili powder and salt [or sugar] mixture to coat. Cut thin slices of the leftover lime to garnish.
3. Pour in your margarita mixture and enjoy!
