Frozen Mango Margarita
Mary Jo and I spent three lovely years living on the island of Aruba. With a fresh fruit and vegetable market on the side of the road on our way home from work, we would often stop and get tropical fruit for cold blended drinks.
Other fruit options:
This Frozen Mango Margarita was one of our favorite drinks on those hot tropical nights. Other fruits like Papayas, strawberries and peaches also work well as margarita flavors, although most any fruit will do.
Choosing a Margarita Tequila:
When you are choosing a tequila to add to your Margaritas, always look for a tequila that is made with 100% Agave. Blanco or Reposado are the best types of tequila to use for mixed drinks, barely aged with a strong enough flavor to shine through. Save the good quality aged tequilas like Añejo for sipping neat.
