Trust me when I say you are going to want these refreshing orange mango margaritas in your life. They are made using only real fruit juices, tequila, and topped with sparkling water for a little bubbly. Perfect for your Mexican feast or just because you deserve it!
When I want a cocktail at home I tend to want one like NOW! I really don’t want to mess with anything complicated or with too many ingredients or steps. Plug in these incredibly easy and tasty orange mango margaritas. They’re so easy you’re going to want to make them over and over again. Probably right after you finish one because it’s so good you’ll want another. Then before you know it it’s one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, FLOOR!
When I drink cocktails I want to know exactly what is in them and want them free of all kinds of junk. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good cocktail full of flavor that’s probably over priced but oh so worth it. However, I need a little balance in my life and having a cocktail with minimal ingredients but delicious flavor is also a must. I started being more conscious about the type of cocktails I have after I decided to take control of my diabetes. I wasn’t going to let that diagnosis dictate my life and deprive me of the things I enjoy. Things like a great margarita to go along with my tacos or queso fundido. We all know those margaritas we get at the restaurant are full of sugar, (but absolutely delicious!), and I can’t justify them. Don’t let me fool you, I will enjoy one every once in a while but this cleaner version is always a better idea.
On a quick note let’s talk about Tajin real quick. If you know, you know. Tajin is good on EVERYTHING but especially fruit and paired with any sweet drink. There is nothing like the hint of salt and chili paired with fruit. Truly an amazing flavor bomb and if you haven’t tried Tajin yet do yourself a favor and try it ASAP. Where can you find it? Where CAN’T you find it?! Aldi, Walmart, most grocery stores, Mexican grocers, online. While you’re out getting some make sure to stock up because you’ll be putting it on everything. Seriously. Watermelon, pineapple, cucumbers, oranges, cantaloupe, corn. The possibilities are endless.
I know I keep saying just how simple and easy these orange mango margaritas are but they truly are! Let’s just do a quick rundown, shall we? Equal parts orange juice, mango juice, and ice go into a shaker. Shake it up real good, pour into a Tajin rimmed glass over ice, add some sparkling water or soda. BOOM. You’ve got yourself an ultra delicious drink that you’ll be making over, and over again. In fact do yourself a favor and quadruple the recipe to save you some time. Who’s watching anyway, right? And if they are, who cares?! You do you and enjoy one, two, three, or a pitcher of these. Go on, you deserve it. I don’t know what you do in your everyday life but you deserve it. I know you do.
