Tomorrow’s Cinco de Mayo! It totally snuck up on me. And I know what you’re thinking.
How did I let the drinking holiday sneak up on me?
I am ashamed of myself.
The important thing was that I did remember. Yesterday at the grocery store as I was walking past all the fruit nectars at the grocery store.
Also, I was at H-E-B before the samples were out and shopping without tiny cups of wine was not much fun.
Next week, we go after noon!
Anyway, my husband took the boys to see the new Avengers movie yesterday afternoon and left me alone to make and consume ALL THE MARGARITAS.
I saw a mango margarita recipe recently that called for the mango nectar (in cans – usually in the Mexican food aisle) instead of fresh mango which is genius because A) mango is annoying to cut and B) if I buy the already cut mango, I’m eating it before it makes it into a margarita.
So this version calls for that nectar, fresh lime juice, tequila, you know, the usual suspects. They were really, really, really good and went perfect with a Sunday afternoon Married at First Sight marathon. #obsessed

I would happily take a day to myself to make and drink margaritas! These look seriously delicious.. mango nectar? By the sounds of it, I would want to drink that by itself!

What am I doing for cinco de mayo, nothing. I know, I’m boring but hey it looks like you had yourself a little party solo on Sunday! I would be happy to have that myself! :)

Oh margaritas…the way to my heart! But this year, I will take a virgin. Hopefully they are still as good?! Probably not but I can dream!

I’m always behind!!! But, not when it comes to margaritas… :-D
I plan on starting my cinco de mayo morning with a Margarita Mimosa and then I want to move on to your mango amazingness here, and then I will finish the day off with a Margarita pitcher. Don’t look for me until Thursday. ;-)

For once, I was totally prepared for Cinco de Mayo — I am always so behind when it comes to holidays! I love the mango, orange and lime combination! So refreshing — definitely going to need one of these later! Pinned :)
