Whether you’re in need of a slushy cocktail or are just trying to clean out the freezer, this Frozen Mango Margarita Slush is the refreshing cocktail you need. With just a handful of ingredients, it comes together in the blender in under 5 minutes.
Ever since living in San Antonio, I’ve had an avid love affair with margaritas. The huge selection of margarita flavors you encounter in a River Walk restaurant is daunting (but that didn’t stop me from eventually trying most of them). And one of my most favorite margaritas, aside from the sangria margarita twist, is the mango margarita.
The great thing about making these margaritas at home is you can make them the exact sweetness you want. I like to rely on the mango to give most of the natural sweetness, but you can taste and adjust to suit your liking!
What alcohol goes in margs?
Margaritas typically include tequila and orange liqueur, such as Cointreau, as the main alcoholic ingredients. The tequila provides a smooth and slightly earthy flavor, while the orange liqueur adds a touch of citrus sweetness and enhances the overall fruitiness of the mango margarita.
Margarita Flavor Options
Tropical Twist: Add a splash of pineapple juice to the frozen mango margarita slush for a delightful tropical twist.
Spicy Mango Kick: For those who enjoy a bit of heat, incorporate a touch of spicy flavor by adding a few slices of jalapeño to the blender when making the frozen mango margarita slush. The spicy kick will contrast perfectly with the sweet mango and create a memorable and unique taste experience.
Coconut Infusion: Take your taste buds on a tropical vacation by blending in a splash of coconut milk or coconut cream to the frozen mango margarita slush.
How to Make a Frozen Mango Margarita
The best thing about this Mango Margarita Slush is that it’s so easy (i.e. virtually foolproof). First, get yourself some frozen mango. I like to use the frozen stuff because it’s cheaper, already cut for you, and instantly turns the drink into a slush (meaning no ice cubes watering down your margarita). Then simply blend the frozen mango with orange juice, tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and sweetener (I use honey or agave nectar). It’s seriously that easy!
And I almost forgot the next most best thing about them…they’re flexible! Not a fan of mango? You can substitute the mango for frozen strawberries or cherries!
