  • 3 ounces Tequila Blanco or Silve Tequila

  • 1 ounce freshly squeesed lime juice
  • 11.5 ounce can of mango nectar
  • 2 TBS table salt to rim glasses
  • Pinch of chili powder to rim glasses
  • Fresh mango slice for garnish
  • Fresh lime slice for garnish

Instructions

  • Rub a slice of lime about the rim of each glass.
  • Mix the table salt and chili powder together and pour it on a plate.
  • Roll the rim of each glasses through the salt and chili powder mixture.
  • Fill the glasses with ice.
  • Mix the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and mango nectar in a small pitcher.
  • Pour 1/2 of the cocktail into each glass.
  • Garnish with mango and lime slices

Notes

  • I recommend using fresh lime juice for this cocktail recipe and any cocktail recipe calling for lime. 
  • You can substitute the Cointreau for Triple Sec which is another orange-flavored liqueur and often used in margaritas. Cointreau is simply a brand name. 
  • You can also substitute the mango nectar by simply adding some fresh mango to the blender to make a  puree. Using Mango puree is great for making frozen margaritas. 
  • Make this a mocktial by omitting the tequila and substituting the Cointreau for fresh orange juice.
