Mango Margaritas – Summer’s Best for Foodies gone Naughty

All that I can say is…if you mess up mango margaritas after leveraging what’s in this humdinger of post…then I don’t know what, but it’s not good.

For the margarita mix lovers out there, I have two cool finds.

First the Margarita Collection from Williams-Sonoma. Customers rate it 4.8 out of 5.0 stars and the triple pack comes with pineapple, lemon-lime, and MANGO!!!!!  🙂

And then, for my low-calorie-hound readers, check out and his wildly popular mango margarita mix. A cool 4.7 out of 5.0 stars and ZERO calories. Yes, you heard it from the Maven first.

Then I dug around for some nifty glasses that I thought would look GREAT with tropical-colored mango margaritas and found a few. The way I see it, Sears and Williams-Sonoma have your mango margarita glass fannies covered.

Now time for a few recipe ideas.  I’m sure all of you margarita fiends out there can take a quick gander at the ideas below and see what will suite your palate the best!  And it *should go* without saying but…don’t forget the lime garnish, nor the salt or sugar for the rims. And uh, yes, the below ingredients are blended.  😉

Version 1

10 oz bag of frozen diced mango
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2/3 cup tequila – preferably silver
2 tablespoons Cointreau or other orange liqueur
2 tablespoons superfine sugar
2 cups ice water

Version 2

2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers tequila
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger triple sec liqueur
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger fresh lime juice
1 mango (see how to make cool little mango pieces)
4 ice cubes
1/4 cup mango nectar

Version 3

3 ounces silver tequila
1 1/2 ounces triple sec
2 to 2 1/2 cups ice
2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup or 2 teaspoons sugar
4 ounces fresh or frozen mango pieces (use more ice if you choose to use fresh mango)

Version 4

1 1/4 ounces silver tequila
1 ounce triple sec
1 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 ounces simple syrup or sweet-and-sour mix
3/4 cup partially frozen mango

Now for the margarita machines/blenders by Margaritaville – aren’t they the coolest? And even more importantly, they’ve got SUPERB CUSTOMER RATINGS. Nothing but the best for my mango fans. Now you might not need the King Kong of the lot, but then again you just might. Because mango lovers = carousers.

Whatever or however you pass your summer, be sure to give a little time to the almighty mango margarita. They’re not so very naughty, after all.
