Frozen Spicy Mango Margarita
Being the traditionalist that I am, I decided to share a summery, fruity frozen margarita recipe that will sure to brighten up your week. I am usually a lime margarita, on the rocks with a salted rim kind of girl, but sometimes I like to kick things up a bit. So I present to you this gorgeous Frozen Spicy Mango Margarita. A little bit of heat, some chili lime seasoning to coat the rim and lots flavor! I love using real fruit juices, like Bolthouse Farms juices for drinks like this. They are 100% juice, super tasty and much easier than peeling tons of mangos in this case. The Bolthouse Farms Amazing Mango juice actually contains: mangos, apples, oranges and bananas but packs a huge mango flavor! One of my favorite Trader Joe's items is the Chile Lime Seasoning Blend, it is PERFECT for margaritas and gives this one a little flair. Combining sweet and spicy helps to balance this drink with a perfect combination of the heat from Tabasco sauce, the mango juice and lime juice for tartness.
So whatever your weekend plans or summer BBQ plans, add this drink to your menu! It will surely brighten any day. Cheers!
