How to make this frozen mango margarita

I’ll show you how to make frozen mango margaritas. Ready?

  • Rim your glasses in salt.
  • Blend the margarita ingredients. (This is the blender I use. It’s great at crushing ice and frozen fruit and doesn’t cost nearly as much as a Vitamix.)
  • Pour into margarita glasses (these classic ones are perfect) and drink up!

See? Easy peasy.

If using fresh lime juice, this is the best kind of lime juicer you can buy. It really squeezes out every last drop.

You might have noticed there’s no triple sec or Cointreau in this recipe. There’s also no agave nectar or simple syrup.

The mango is sweet enough that you don’t need to add any more sweetness.

And without the orange liqueur, that means this is a relatively healthy frozen margarita recipe without any added sweetener.

Now you absolutely could add orange liqueur if you want. Just swap it in for the water and you’ll be all set.

Variations

You can substitute any other frozen fruit for the frozen mango. Just use the same amount.

You can choose to rim the glass with salt if you’d like. And if you want a spicy mango margarita, you can add some chili powder, chipotle powder or cayenne to the salt as well. The salty/sweet/spicy combination is irresistible.

Or if you want to keep things sweet, rim the glass with sugar. Or combine equal parts sugar and salt. So many options!

You can also make a frozen mango mocktail! Just swap out the tequila for orange juice.

Make ahead frozen margaritas

You can actually make these ahead of time! Since alcohol doesn’t completely freeze, the tequila will prevent the mixture from becoming a hard block.

Once you’re ready to drink them, you can throw the mixture back into the blender if you want to loosen it up.

Or pour it into a pitcher, give it a good stir and then pour into glasses.

What to serve these with

I mean, you don’t really have to serve these with anything, but chips and salsa or guacamole always work.

In fact, this salty sweet bacon pineapple guacamole would be the perfect accompaniment to this frozen mango margarita recipe.

And who doesn’t want margaritas with tacos? These ground chicken tacos are perfect for a weeknight dinner or a party.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup lime juice, plus more for rimming the glasses

  • chili powder, chipotle powder or cayenne (optional, see notes)
  • 4 cups frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup 100% agave silver tequila

Notes

If you want these a little spicy, add to the salt either 3/4 tsp. chili powder, 1/2 tsp. chipotle powder or 1/2 tsp. cayenne (or however much you want for your preferred spice level).
You can actually make these ahead of time! Since alcohol doesn't completely freeze, the tequila will prevent the mixture from becoming a hard block.
