I adore mangos and margaritas are one of my favourite drinks to have on warm summer days. Add some jalapeño spiciness to the mix and you'll get this delicous cocktail.
MANGO MARGARITA RECIPE
- 4 oz / 120 ml tequila
- 2 oz / 60 ml dry Curaçao
- 3 oz / 90 ml lime juice
- 1 oz / 30 ml jalapeño infused agave syrup (method below)
- 2 cups of freshly juiced mango
- 1 jalapeño slice
To make the jalapeño infused agave syrup you'll need 1 jalapeño, 6 oz of agave syrup and some water. Chop up the jalapeño and bring to a boil with 3 oz of water. Once boiling, remove it from the fire and let it sit for 5 minutes. Strain, add the agave and stir to until well mixed.
Rim a chilled margarita glass with salt. You can do this by moistening the rim with water or with a slice of lime and gently patting the outside part of the rim on some salt. If the glass is well chilled in a freezer the salt might stick to its rim without the need to moisten it. Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into the margarita glass. Garnish with a slice of jalapeño.
