After an unseasonably cool spring in Wisconsin, summer is finally making an appearance.  70 degrees?  Pour me a margarita!

Of course, while any margarita may whisper summer, fruit margaritas shout it loud. Strawberry is probably the most famous, but a mango margarita is equally delicious.  Yes, tropical is perfect for summer.

Close up

Happily, it’s also mango season now, so making this drink with healthy whole fruit is completely practical. 

Since Margaritas fall into the “fancy” drink category, I decided to play with a little coarse sugar and lime peel to rim the glass.  I’ve shown it with and without so take your pick.  Or go with the traditional salt!

Chose your garnish

Prepping a mango for the drink is easy.  Just peel, cut in crosshatches, then slice off the fruit into a blender. Add the remaining ingredients, a handful of ice then blend. 

Peel, cut mango in cross hatches.

And this drink has so much flavor it’s even good without the alcohol.  But you didn’t hear that here.

Serve over ice.  And chalk off one serving of fruit for the day! Fruity and festive with fresh mango, orange and lime, Mango Margaritas can get your summer started in the best way possible.

      OMG, I found mold floating in my bottle of lemon juice (that I use for canning) last week. So much prefer fresh!

    I love mango margaritas — but the first time we had them, the server accidentally (at least I hope it was accidental) spilled an entire tray of them on Mark. He is still coping with the trauma and may never have another…

      Ages ago, while cocktail waitressing, I spilled blackberry brandies, fortunately on myself. Smaller but also sticky. Still makes me nervous. So I get it David!
