Mango Coconut Margaritas

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

These mango coconut margaritas taste just like a creamsicle. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo.

I hope that title doesn’t throw you off. Mango + coconut + tequila? It kinda makes my stomach turn a little bit thinking about the creamy coconut mixing with the tequila. That might have more to do with my 21st birthday, too many tequila shots and an episode of me, the Carlisle hospital and a nurse named Penny who didn’t like being bitten though more than anything else.

I usually can’t do tequila for that exact reason. Margaritas are the only exception. Especially, fruit ones.

Since I know you’re planning on making the best meat on this earth this weekend for Cinco de Mayo or just because it’s amazing and needs no holiday to be enjoyed, I thought I’d share the mango margarita we slurped while devouring that pizza.

Ree has a recipe in her book that I took some liberty in switching up. I barely follow recipes when it comes to food, so drinks are a total wing it kind of thing. How bad can they turn out when alcohol is involved?

Particularly that Patron you see hiding out in the background. Ulysses doesn’t drink alcohol unless it has an umbrella in it and yet every year, friends, coworkers, random acquaintances give him bottles of booze for the holidays. For the sake of my liquor cabinet, I hope they never find out the truth.

Mango Margarita

So, it’s Friday and if that’s not a good enough excuse for a drink, it’s Cinco de Mayo tomorrow and if that’s not a good enough excuse, there’s no hope for you.

Have a drink, maybe a coconutty, lime infused mango margarita maybe just a beer, kick your feet up and enjoy the weekend!

Mango Coconut Margaritas

Yield: 2-3 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

A mango, coconut, lime infused frozen margarita. If this doesn't scream summer, I'm not sure what does.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/3 cup triple sec
  • 1 15oz. can mango slices, drained (fresh, ripe mango will work too)
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (I used from a carton, but from a can would probably be even better!)
  • 1 tablespoon agave
  • 1-1 1/2 cups ice

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until ice is broken up and almost smooth.
  2. If you want to garnish the rim of the glass, combine sugar & lime zest on a plate. Wet the rim of a glass with a cut lime and flip the rim into the sugar/lime mixture until it sticks to the glass all the way around.
  3. Pour drink and enjoy!
