Mango Jalapeño Margarita.jpg

This here is my grown up version of a spicy mango on a stick.  Except this time, jalapeño plays a big part in the flavor profile of this refreshing drink.  Oh, and it contains tequila and it’s not sold by a vendor in the corner of my street. Ok, it’s not quite like a mango on a stick but I enjoy both with the same passion.

If you have a couple of ripe mangos in your fruit basket, give this delicious celebratory beverage a try.  Omit the alcohol if you prefer for a cool, spicy, mango slurpee-esque drink.

Happy summer and cheers!!
