Margarita is the most famous tequila based cocktail. It is simple and refreshing at the same time. It is served shaken or blended with ice. There are many stories regarding its origin, but one thing is certain, the drink came from Mexico.
Strawberry Mango Margarita is a must try. I prefer using fresh mangoes instead of mango juice. It gives the drink a smoother taste and texture. It is just like a fruit shake with a kick.
2 cups halved or quartered hulled strawberries
2 ripe Asian mangoes, peeled and sliced
Sugar or simple syrup
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
24 ounces tequila
30 ounces Triple Sec or other orange liqueur
2 cups ice
Salt for rimming
Prepare margarita glasses and rim them with salt.
Place ice, strawberries, mangoes, tequila, triple sec, in a blender (in order)
Blend the ingredients on “ice crush” initially and then add simple syrup to taste. Switch blender setting to “frappeâ€. Stir in lime zest.
Serve in individual glasses or in a pitcher.
