This Mango Margarita is the most delicious fruity margarita you’ll ever make! It can be made frozen or on the rocks and is great for parties and celebrations, barbecues or just relaxing on warm sunny days. Both recipe versions are included below!
I love both of the flavors that I mentioned above, but let’s just say I saved the best for last!
Whether you plan on making it frozen or on the rocks, there’s something about the flavor and texture of mangos that makes for the perfect cocktail. The fruit is naturally creamy and thick, which makes the slushiest of frozen cocktails. And it’s also naturally sweet enough so you don’t have to add an additional sweetener if you don’t want.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- mango (juice or frozen chunks)
- tequila (gold or silver)
- lime juice
- triple sec
- agave syrup or other sweetener (for frozen version only)
How to Make A Mango Margarita
To make it on the rocks – You’ll need some mango juice instead of fresh mangos. I used 100% mango juice that I was able to find at my local grocery store in the juice aisle (near bottles of lemon juice, lime juice, cranberry juice, etc…) If you can’t find any there, you may find some in the ethnic food aisles.
Once you’ve got the mango juice, simply combine it with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Serve over ice and that’s it!
You don’t need any sweetner for this version because the mango juice is sweet enough on its own.
To make it frozen – You’ll need frozen mango chunks which can be found in the freezer section of your local grocery store.
To make, you’ll add frozen mango, tequila, lime juice, triple sec and some additional ice to a blender to make the margaritas extra slushy. Blend until smooth and creamy and serve!
Substitutions and Variations
Don’t have all the ingredients? Here are some substitutions and that may come in handy.
- If you can’t find 100% mango juice, you can use a mango juice blend instead.
- Don’t have agave syrup? You can use honey, simple syrup or plain granulated sugar instead.
Want to make these mango margaritas ahead of time? You can! Simply make the margarita mixture, then store in an airtight container in the fridge 1 day ahead of time if you’re serving it on the rocks, or store in the freezer if you’re serving it frozen.
