Would this fun & festive weekend be complete without an ice cold Margarita? I’m gonna go with a big fat NO. Especially when it involves Mango Jalapeño Frozen Margaritas because denying that would be straight up silly. These margs are literally heaven in a glass.
Have you ever had the combo of Mango & Jalapeño? Well, it’s pure gold. And when you add tequila to the mix?? OOOOO BOY.
I love a good frozen marg, so I decided to use frozen mango chunks, however, if you prefer your margarita on the rocks- that is no problemo! Simply use a fresh, ripe mango in place of the frozen mango– blend it up, shake it up, and pour over ice!
- 2- 3 oz Jalapeño infused tequila (depending on strength preference)
- 1½ c Frozen Mango chunks
- 1 c orange juice
- 1 oz Cointreau
- 2-3 T Agave nectar
- Juice of 2 large limes
- Ice, as needed
- Jalepeno slices and lime wedges for serving
- CHILI SALT FOR THE RIM:
- 1 tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp salt
- For jalapeño infused tequila, combine 2 sliced jalapeños and 2 c tequila in a large jar or container. Let sit for 6-8 hours or overnight, then strain before using. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for a few weeks.
- To make the margaritas, rub the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and then dip in chili salt (can also sub sugar or plain salt). Add all margarita ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust strength/sweetness, as desired.
- If you prefer your margarita on the rocks, sub 1 ripe mango instead of frozen. Shake it up and pour over ice. Bottoms up!!
