Margarita of the Month: August 2014 – Mango Margarita

Mangoes seem to be everywhere (and on sale) now (well, in FL at least…), so it seems a logical choice for mixing into a margarita this month…

Mango Margarita

2 ounces  Gold Tequila

1 ounce  Triple Sec

1 ounce  Freshly-Squeezed Lime Juice

1/2 cup  Diced Mango Flesh

Lime Wheel for garnish if desired

Salt for the glass

 

The components...

The components…

Rub the remnants of your squeezed lime around the rim of your glass and dip in salt to crust the rim and set aside.

Blend, blend, baby...

Blend, blend, baby…

Throw everything else into your blender and let it have at it until very smooth…

Pour it on!

Pour it on!

Add some ice cubes to your prepped glass and pour the fruity goodness over…

garnish as desired and drink up!

Alternately you can shake the blended drink in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain to serve it “neat”, or you can add some crushed ice to the blender for a frozen version…

This makes one nice-sized summery-mangoey-fruity-tasty drink (go ahead and double-up the recipe if you please!) – only hard thing is cutting up one of those dang mangoes!

Back to the bar, and the kitchen! See you soon!
