strawberry mango margaritas

‘Tis the season for enjoying yummy cold drinks on the deck — and all the better when made with fresh fruit!

My faithful readers know I’m always a fan of anything mango.  But since I had some fresh strawberries needing to be used up in the fridge, decided to try making some strawberry-mango margaritas.  I don’t know how you could really go wrong with those two…  :)  But thankfully, the margaritas turned out delicious!  The strawberry and mango flavors were actually fairly mild, so if you want them to be really fruity, I’d add in even a little more fruit.  But this ratio made a delicious margarita that everyone definitely enjoyed!

For those looking for a non-alcoholic margarita, this would also be a yummy option.  Just leave out the alcohol, and if you’d like, sub in a little extra fruit juice (strawberry, mango, limeade, or orange juice could work) instead.

So if you’re looking for a fun, fruity drink to enjoy in the heat of summer (or as a bit of inspiration in the winter!), pull out your blender and give this one a try!

Ali’s Tip:

Feel free to experiment with other favorite fruits in this as well!  (Just be sure that you have about 3-4 cups of fruit in there.)  Some other fun options might be: blackberries, blueberries, peaches, apricots, plums, etc…
