Frozen Friday is coming a day early this week! Get excited!
Mangoes are so ridiculously cheap around here right now – is that happening everywhere? I bought mangoes 3/$1 this week! I paid more for the limes in this margarita than I did for the mangoes! Crazy, right? I very rarely buy mangoes (I think they taste like perfume) but when I saw that price, I knew there were margaritas in my future.
These were the best drinks I’ve ever made at home which I know isn’t saying much since my at-home drink of choice is Diet Coke and whatever is in the freezer but take my word for it, these are amazing! The recipe is easily adjustable so play around with it if you like it not-so-sweet or even sweeter. You really can’t mess it up!
- 3 ounces tequila
- 1½ ounces triple sec
- 2 - 2½ cups ice
- 2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- 4 ounces fresh or frozen mango pieces
- lime wedges & salt or sugar for rim of glass
Put tequila, triple sec, ice, lime juice, and simple syrup in a blender; blend until smooth. Adjust the consistency to your preferences by adding more ice or more liquid. Moisten the rims of 2 glasses with the lime wedges; roll in salt or sugar. Pour margarita into glasses. Serve immediately.
