My kids and I go through cases of mangoes- fighting for the last piece. Margaritas are my favorite cocktail. You see why this is the perfect recipe, right? 🙂 Perfect for Mother’s Day! Perfect for Fiesta Friday #16 at The Novice Gardener too! I didn’t join the party last week and have to make up for it this week with two contributions. (My fabulous Mother’s Day dinner will be next….)
This recipe was adapted from Food and Wine, contributed by David Yan of Casa Noble Estate. We added a little bit of granulated sugar to the chile powder coating on the rim of the glass. My kids enjoyed a non-alcoholic version as well. Super tasty!
Yield: Makes 2 drinks
- 1 cup ice
- 1 lime wedge
- 3 ounces tequila
- 1 small mango—peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped (3 ounces)
- 1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
- 1 tsp chile powder
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- 2 ounces Cointreau
- 1 1/2 ounces agave nectar
- 3 ounces Italian grapefruit soda
- Spread the chile powder and granulated sugar in a dish. Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with the lime wedge; dip the rim in the chile powder to coat.
- In a blender, puree the mango. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into the glass and serve.
