Strawberry Mango Margarita is a fruity, refreshing margarita that is perfect for a warm summer day.
I married an ex-bartender which makes my happy hours that much happier! And now that I am no longer pregnant I can enjoy a cocktail here and there.
When warm weather months roll around at my house our favorite thing to do is sit on our back porch and grill, sip a nice mason jar of sangria and watch Will run circles around our yard! Amen to children that aren’t restrained to the four walls of my small house!
Throughout my college years I was a waitress but never a bartender. My cocktail making skills consist of things like cranberry & vodkas or pouring a margarita mix from Costco into a glass with a lime wedge and salt (don’t judge!). But–I am turning over a new leaf and things are about to change!
I am getting bartending lessons from my husband in an attempt to learn how to mix up some yummy drinks for all of those summer guests I plan on having over. A few times a month I am going to share a new cocktail, sangria, margarita or other drink recipe that my husband creates & I learn to make–so stay tuned!
Hopefully you guys will find a few drinks along the way that you like and can sip on this summer.
Today’s recipe for a Strawberry Mango Margarita makes a nice big pitcher that you can share with your friends on a warm summer day. Margaritas have always been one of my favorite drinks, especially the fruity ones. 😉
Strawberry Mango Margarita is a fruity, refreshing margarita that is perfect for Cinco de Mayo or a warm summer night.
1 cup of tequila
1/2 cup of strawberry schnapps
2 cups of ice
2 mangos, peeled, pit removed and sliced
8 oz (1/2 lb.) strawberries, stems removed
1 cup of margarita mix
2 Limes, juiced
Lime, salt/sugar for garnish
Blend the ice, tequila, schnapps, margarita mix and lime juice until smooth. Add the fruit and blend again until smooth. Pour into a large pitcher.
Garnish the rims of the glasses with salt or sugar and a slice of lime.
If you have a small blender then you will need to blend this in batches. I suggest blending the ice and liquid and then putting half aside and add half of the fruit and blend. Then transfer the other part of the liquid and blend with the remaining fruit. Combine everything together in a large pitcher once done and stir.
