Mango Magaritas with chili lime salt

A couple of weeks ago I shared a bit about my visit to Ensenada, Mexico during my four-day culinary cruise with Princess Cruise Lines. There was no way I could leave you hanging without sharing the best ever frozen mango recipe you ever will make.

You see after we toured Monte Xanic winery our tour guide drove us back to downtown Ensenada for crispy fish tacos and fresh fruit margaritas.

Fresh fruit margaritas you say? My mind was blown. I mean of course, I have heard of fresh fruit margaritas but there is just something about being in Mexico and sipping on a cold, frothy margarita made with ripe and juicy mangos. My mind was officially blown.

Altos Blanco Tequila

The other secret? Good tequila. White tequila, to be exact. Our tour guide was very specific about this tip! Throw away the cheap stuff and invest in a nice, smooth tequila. I happened to use this sexy bottle of Altos but use whatever fits your budget as long as you stick with white or silver.

Last but not least, don’t forget the chili lime salt-rimmed glass! A staple in Mexican cuisine, this seasoning is made with chili peppers, lime, and salt. Adding it to these mango margaritas was inspired by my travels to Cancun where vendors frequently stroll the beaches offering fresh chunks of mango drizzled with lime juice and sprinkled with chili lime salt.

  1. If I might make a quick suggestion, 2/3 of a cup of tequila for 6 servings is just not enough. That’s not even an ounce of alcohol per drink. Margaritas are typically on the stronger side, in terms of drinks. To taste authentic, there should be enough tequila to taste it.

    That being said, everybody has their preferences, but just a heads up, this is on the weak side.

  2. Any chance you’ve made the chili lime salt at home & would share the recipe? I make mango margaritas often in the summer, but love the idea of this twist!

  3. I love anything mango, so this sounds right up my alley! The chili lime salt would be the perfect addition for a spicy kick. Now I just need some tacos to go with it. Yum!

  4. These sound wonderful! I was not a fan of margaritas until this last summer, when the bartender at Agave Roja restaurant (Corolla, NC) made us a classic margarita. What a difference it makes to have the drink made just with fresh ingredients! We got hooked on that one, and I could see getting hooked on these, too. :-)
