These are just so delicious! I can't express how delicious they are through words, so you are going to have to make them for yourself. I made these for the first time at a party two summers ago and I loved them then and I still love them now. Last night I served them at a small dinner party. That is written about over in the Entertaining Friends post.
The idea for this cocktail came from The Pioneer Woman. I did not follow that recipe exactly, so I kind of came up with my own version. However, I did do the sugar lime rim exactly as she did in hers. So delicious!
I prefer to use fresh mangos, but you could just as easily use canned mangos if you don't have ripe ones on hand. Fresh is better, but canned still works. So, if you are planning and parties soon, you just might want to have a pitcher ready to go.
Serves: 1 big pitcher / Prep time: 10 minutes / Cook time: None
2 Fresh Ripe Mangoes
1 Cup/120 ml tequila
3/4 Cup/90 ml Cointreau liqueur
1 Cup /120 ml of 7 up (any lemon lime flavour fizzy drink will work)
Lots and lots of crushed ice
4 Tablespoons of sugar
Zest of one lime
Lime slices to serve
First, cut your mango into large chunks. Or maybe it will be so soft you that you just scoop out the flesh. Once you have done this, add the mango, tequila, Cointreau, 7up and crushed ice to your blender. Mix on high speed until it is well blended. Add more ice if necessary.
Grate a lime for the zest and mix this with the sugar and add a squeeze of lime juice and mix it up well. With another lime section, rub it around the rim of your cocktail glass. Tip the glass upside down into the sugar lime mixture until the rim is completely coated in the coating. Invert the glass upright and pour in your margarita! Garnish with a lime slice and enjoy!
