The Mango Margarita is a fruity summer cocktail that pairs just as well with mezcal in place of tequila.
Tequila is trending globally at the moment so expect to see tequila-based cocktails EVERYWHERE for the next few years. This is a delicious mix of sharp, tangy and sweet. Our favourite tequila for this serve is Aqua Riva, however, pick any 100% agave tequila you can get hold of.
How to make the Mango Margarita Recipe
20ml Orange Liqueur
20ml Fresh Lime Juice
30ml Mango Juice
10ml Sugar Syrup
Add all ingredients to a shaker, fill with ice and shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds. Strain the mix into a martini glass. If you have a fine strainer then double strain to remove all tiny ice particles from the cocktail.
For a sumptuous mouthfeel, swap out mango juice for mango puree or muddled fresh mango. It will add an even fruitier kick to the cocktail.
What Tequila Shall I Use In The Mango Margarita Recipe?
Use only 100% Blue Agave Tequila when recipes call for Tequila. We love Aqua Riva but other great cocktail tequilas include El Rayo, Espolon and Olmeca.
