Fresh Mango Margarita (Refreshing Summer Cocktail)

This fresh mango margarita is a sweet, tangy, and refreshing way to kick off happy hour! Blend for a frozen cocktail anytime!
Summer and frozen margaritas go hand in hand for me!  I love the sweet & citrus-y combination of the classic margarita, blended with ice and poured into a tall glass. This fun mango margarita is a twist on the classic. Instead of simple syrup, I blend a fresh ripe mango in the drink for a burst of color and sweet tropical flavor.

This Fresh Mango Margarita Is:

  • Sweet
  • Tangy
  • Fruity
  • Citrus-y
  • Great for one drink or a big batch
  • A refreshing summer cocktail

I have been loving mangoes so much lately – there’s nothing better than biting into a ripe juicy mango!  When I have extra mangoes, I love to throw them into curries, soups, and especially cocktails.

What’s In This Mango Margarita?

  • A fresh, ripe mango.  If you only have frozen mangoes, use 1 cup of the frozen fruit instead.
  • Tequila! I used reposado, but use whatever kind you prefer.
  • Lime Juice, preferably freshly squeezed
  • Ice
  • Salt… because salt, lime, tequila is a classic combo!

A lot of margaritas you’d get at a bar or restaurant are made with simple syrup, which is a syrup made of sugar and water.  Instead of adding sugar to this recipe, the blended mango adds enough sweetness instead. So you can have a sweet drink that is also refined sugar free!

How Do I Make this Frozen Margarita with Mango?

  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend on medium for about 1 minute.
  2. Pour into your favorite glass, garnish with a slice of lime, and drift away to Margaritaville.

I’ve been trying to have a fun cocktail every Friday, to celebrate the end of the work (from home!) week and to kickoff the weekend in style. Margs are my summer go-to cocktail, so I’ll be making a lot of these as long as my mango supply hold out.  If you want to use frozen mangoes, that would work too! Just use 1 cup frozen mango instead of the fresh.
