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!
