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.
MANGO MARGARITA RECIPE
Ingredients: Mixture for four cocktails

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!
