Thirsty Thursday: Kick Off Cinco de Mayo Weekend with a Margarita

T-minus three days to Cinco de Mayo! Ole! It’s time to start thinking about guacamoles, salsas, and of course the iconic and refreshing margarita. Can’t wait until Sunday to start the fiesta? Here’s a Frozen Mango Margarita to get you sipping.

Frozen, diced mango offers a punch of sweet flavor while also acting as ice cubes in this blended margarita. Forgo the horrible sweet-and-sour-mix for fresh lime juice to transform this cocktail into something citrusy and stunning. And it simply wouldn’t be a margarita without cool, silver tequila and Cointreau. The directions are simple: just blend until smooth and serve with some delicious food.

Get ready for the weekend and turn out pitchers of our favorite cocktail from south of the border.

Bottoms up, Amigos!
