Mango Margarita

Sipping Saturday 

Today’s Margarita is inspired by the mango paletas I made last week.  As I peeled my mangos to make the paletas my tiny kitchen swirled with the aroma of a tropical paradise.  I knew by Saturday my body, soul and brain would be in need of little tropical getaway.  What better way to soothe away a stressful week than with a Mango Margarita? Enjoy! 

Mango con Chile is popular street treat sold in Mexico.  The Chile is either sprinkled on paletas, fresh fruit or incorporated into dried mango strips.  Look for this chile in the latin section of your store.  If the chile rim is not your flavor, rim your glass with salt and enjoy.  Fresh juice is the key to this margarita and the lime juice the mango a flavor pop.

    I definitely have to make these! I’m nuts about mangoes, and I’m nuts about margaritas, but I never tried a mango margarita before. I love chili and margarita together but I can’t find the special chili powder that’s used with sweets. I was told that the chili powder is a mix and it’s sweeter. I hope I can find it! :)

    No no, I am all good with the chile powdered rim…just bring it by as is :)
    P.S. I had a mango for breakfast and now I feel a tad disappointed in the experience 😉

    You know, Sweetlife, I’m beginning to think you are trying to turn me into a lush. Every time I visit your blog, there is the perfect, refreshing summer drink, just waiting for me. It never fails to make my mouth water! I love the addition of chili on the rim…what a nice kick and a great idea.

    Oh that you put chile powder on the rim – I am sold. My kids eat mango with chile everyday but I never thought about this variation. Beautiful.
