Expert Tips For Making A Homemade Margarita

  • If the margarita is too thick, add a bit more alcohol or even a splash of water to thin it down. Then blend more.
  • If you want the margarita thicker, do more mango or less liquid for a thicker cocktail.
  • When you first mix up the margarita it will be very thick. But, just know after a few minutes the ice and mango melt a bit and it thins up.

Variations To Recipe

Here are some alternative options for making this mango margarita recipe!

  • Add in a 1/3 cup of orange juice for a stronger punch of flavor. Trust me, it really ramps up the tart and sweet flavor.
  • Tajin is another option for rimming the glass.
  • You could salt the glass if you didn’t want to use chili powder.
  • For a spicy margarita add in some jalapeno and blend, it will give a nice level of heat.

Recipe FAQs

What is the origin of margaritas?

Honestly, there is a lot of debate on how or when the margarita came about. But, from what I have learned sometime in 1938 a man named Carlos ‘Danny’ Herrera created the first margarita at his restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico. Since then this Mexican cocktail has taken the world by storm, with many variations.

How to sweeten the mango margarita recipe?

Not sweet enough? Reach for simple syrup or agave or even honey. Drizzle in and taste, and see how you like it. Add as much or little as you would like. I just taste in the blender at the end, then flavor to my liking. That way the sweet syrup mixes with all the ingredients well before you pour into the glasses.

How much does this recipe serve?

I was able to get 4 glasses that were 16 ounces each out of this recipe. But depending on how much your ice and mango break down as it is blended, just know it can vary slightly. Adjust the recipe to fit how much you want to serve. If you want more, add more ingredients for a larger serving size. Or less if you want to make this a single-serve cocktail for one.

How to store leftover margaritas?

Don’t want to drink all your margarita mix? Just place any leftover cocktail in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Then drink within 24 hours of making it. It will become watery and lose a bit of that fresh flavor as it sits. Give a good stir then enjoy.

    Oh my goodness….. it is 8Am and I seriously am loving and wanting one of these Manga Margaritias! They look delicious and refreshing and soooooo good 😉

  2. I have never heard of a mango margarita, but I really love mangos and this looks perfect for summertime.

  3. We love mangos, and this sounds delicious! I feel like so many drinks are citrus based, and this would be a nice change.

  4. I love margaritas, I need to try this recipe, because I also love mangos, great combinations of flavors

  5. There used to be mangoes growing on a tree at the park and we’d get them. Year after year. I haven’t seen them for awhile now though. I wonder why.

  6. I absolutely love mango, it is such a great flavour, I bet this drink tastes amazing with the orange liquor.

  7. I am not a cocktail person, more a beer gal, but, this sounds so good right now! Especially because here we are currently having 43 degrees of temperature. I know this cocktail would feel refreshing and invigorating, I lately feel way too lethargic. Thanks for sharing!
