After one sip, you’ll be wanting to shake the hand of the mango man.
I’ve had this “oh so delish” cocktail on my mind for about a month now. The date is May 5th, Cinco de Mayo, and I’m sitting at the bar of a local Mexican place with my beautiful girl friend. We order the Buy 1 Get 1 margarita special and consume them with great joy. Cinco de Mayo I love you.
The group next to us then orders a round of Mango Margaritas. The name alone sounds silky smooth and sexy. Say it, “M A N G O M A R G A R I T A“. It’s like straight goodness rolling off your tongue.
I watch as the bartender blends up the tangy tequila concoction and serves the yellow, heaven in a glass, to our bar neighbors. I mumble a simple, “Looks good” to them and voyeuristically watch them sip down their Mango Margaritas out of the corner of my eye.
Did I order one? No.
Why not? I don’t know. Lapse of judgement.
Here is the Mango Margarita recipe so you can make these delicious cocktails at your home.

Let me know what you think of the Mango Margarita, are you a fan? Next time you blend some of these up, let me know. I might just stop by and mumble something legendary like, “Looks Good” to you and stalk your every sip…that is, until I get mine!
