We came across this recipe on the How Sweet It Is Blog right in time to get ready for Cinco de Mayo! The pictures look so amazing, we can’t wait to try it!
The recipe calls for this to be made with fresh mango, but you can substitute frozen chunks that are easy to find at Trader Joe’s or Target. It will make the drink extra frosty. If you use the frozen mango, you will just need to use a little less ice.
Personally, I could go without the chili powder for sprinkling, but that’s totally up to you and your taste. Enjoy!!
Fresh Mango Margarita Frosty
- 4 cups fresh mango chunks
- 4 cups ice
- 1/2 cup silver tequila
- 1/2 cup freshly squeeze lime juice
- 1/4 cup grand marnier liqueur
- pinch of salt
- lime wedges for garnish
- chili powder for sprinkling
- simple syrup, if needed for sweetness
Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and… blend! Taste and if desired, add a little more tequila or a little simple syrup – whatever you need. I like to blend without the simple syrup and then taste and add it if the mango is not sweet enough.
Spoon the frosty into cups and serve with lime wedges. Sprinkle with chili powder if you’d like!
If your mango isn’t sweet enough, add a few tablespoons of simple syrup! To make the syrup, heat 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat, whisking until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil then turn off the heat and let cool to room temp.
