How Do you make a mango margarita?

There’s two ways to enjoy a margarita. Blended or on the rocks. So let’s talk about making a mango margarita on the rocks first.

What does on the rocks mean? Over ice. This is a great option if you don’t have a blender.

To make a mango margarita on the rocks we will combine tequila, triple sec, and mango juice. Stir our shake it up to combine. Then pour over a cup of ice.

How do you make a frozen mango margarita?

This is personally my favorite way to enjoy a margarita but I didn’t always have a blender, so these are still a fun luxury for me.

The recipe below is for one margarita. The basic idea is 1 cup of ice and 1/2 cup of frozen mango per margarita. You can use fresh mangoes also, but I find frozen mango makes for a really creamy drink. And since we’re not using a sweetened juice in this version adding some agave adds a nice sweetness overall.
