Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins

Ingredients

Mango Margaritas

  • 2 cups frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • Tajin Seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons turmeric simple syrup

Turmeric Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup peeled and diced turmeric root
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

Turmeric Simple Syrup

  • Combine turmeric, sugar, and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce to low-medium and cook for 1 hour. Strain out the turmeric and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Mango Margaritas with a Turmeric Chili Twist

  • Take a lime wedge and wet the edges of your glasses. Drag the rims in Tajin seasoning and put in the freezer.
  • Cut fresh mango into bite sized pieces and put them on skewers. Sprinkle Tajin seasoning on them and set aside.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Frozen mango is difficult because sometimes it seems like it's smooth but there will be hidden chunks in there.
  • Pour into the glasses, sprinkle some Tajin seasoning on the surface, and place the seasoned fresh mango skewers across the glass. Serve immediately.
  • Or if you are taking the margaritas on a picnic, pour them in individual small mason jars and freeze. In 10 to 15 minutes the margaritas will be the consistency they were when first blended.
