Ultimate Refreshment: The Mango Margarita

Last weekend, during a stormy summer Saturday, we spent the afternoon driving around and doing all of the things we never want to do while it’s sunny out… we shopped, sold some old stuff, and finally ended up out for a late lunch. As luck would have it, there were two-for-one margaritas. We couldn’t have been more stoked.

Usually I order drinks in their natural form, but I was feeling a bit adventurous. When the option to try a mango margarita was presented, I had to take it. I love, love, love mango—it’s like velvet for your tongue—and I seriously enjoyed my mango margarita… so much, that I decided to share the recipe with you all.

You can enjoy this blended as well, but this recipe is on the rocks.
