Mango Margaritas with Chili & Lime

July 17, 2010

Since P and I bought a thing of tequila a few weeks back I’ve been on a margarita making kick.  They go well with the 100+ degree days we’ve been having in Sacramento.  Yesterday P was eating some chili covered mangoes while I was considering our dinner options and I had a moment of inspiration.  I grabbed some of the frozen mango we have in our freezer for smoothies and made up these margaritas with a chili-lime salt rimmed glass.

I’m never very good about measuring out what I put in something, but here’s the general idea…

Mango Margaritas with Tajin around the Rim

Juice from 2 meyer lemons

1/2 cup simple syrup (we made ours with honey)

1 1/2 cup frozen mangoes


Tajin (or salt) for the glass

In the blender mix the lemon juice, simple syrup (we may have used slightly less than 1/2 cup), and the frozen mangoes.  Make sure the mixture is blended smooth.  While I don’t normally drink blended margaritas it seemed appropriate for this specific drink to use the frozen mangoes and have the whole thing be sort of like an adult smoothie.  I threw in a little more than 2 shots worth of tequila, but you could adjust based on how you’re feeling and blended for another few seconds.

We have Tajin, a chili-lime-salt mix around the house which worked perfectly with these margaritas.  I don’t always like a ton of salt on my margaritas, especially if they are not citrus based, so this mixture gives the drink a little extra kick without being overwhelmingly salty.

    LDL is said to be harmful and HDL is described as being healthful.
    It also helps detoxify our body effectively and balances our digestive tract.
    Olive oil is also good, but not after it has been heated.

    The account went on to say that, the disease first discovered
    in Uganda back in 2001, called The Banana Bacterial Wilt or BBW.
    If you want to have some bananas ready in your home
    for consumption, then aside from getting fresh ripe bananas, you can also consider preserving the fruit so you can enjoy it any time
    you please. Where else can one get so much delicious
    taste and healthy benefits from one source.

    Pharmaceutical companies have spent years and probably billions of dollars trying to create safe synthetic anti-inflammatories and
    COX-2 inhibitors. Nowadays, Chinese people can
    buy fresh vegetables in the market the whole year long; however,
    twenty or thirty years ago, in winter, because
    of the very cold weather, it was difficult to find fresh seasonal vegetables apart from winter grows.

    The string needs to be long enough to secure the bag and to be tied
    to the saucepan handle to reach the bottom of the pan.

    They will taste a bit different from a chicken farm than when
    you buy them at the store. Stimulating foods and drinks seem to give you more energy, but they don’t. Most commonly used as a wrap for sushi, it can be added to soups and stews.
