Mango margarita

When it comes to summer cocktails, few drinks are as refreshing as a mango margarita. While the origin of the margarita is a bit of a mystery, there are several theories about how the mango margarita came to be. One theory suggests that the drink was created in the 1930s by Don the Beachcomber, a famed tiki bar owner in Hollywood. Another theory claims that the drink was invented in the 1940s by Carlos Herrera, a bartender at a Mexico City restaurant.

Whatever the true origin of the mango margarita, there's no denying that it's a delicious and refreshing drink that's perfect for summertime sipping. The key to a good mango margarita is to use ripe, fresh mangoes. If you can't find fresh mangoes, you can also use frozen mangoes. Simply thaw them before using.

To make a mango margarita, start by adding fresh mango, lime juice, and tequila to a blender and blend until smooth. Then, rim your glasses with salt and pour in the margarita mixture. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!


Making a mango margarita is a great way to liven up your margarita game. For best results, start with fresh, ripe mangoes and juice them. Then mix the juice with tequila and a hint of lime juice for a delicious, sweet-tart flavor. To add even more depth and complexity to the flavor, add a splash of triple sec and a pinch of sugar or simple syrup. Finally, serve the mango margarita over ice and garnish it with a lime wedge for a refreshing twist. Enjoy!
