It’s margarita Monday, ladies and gentleman! I think every Monday calls for a good Margarita, don’t you agree?
I’ve decided margaritas are definitely my favorite mixed drink; nothing else compares. I like them on the tart side, on the rocks, with salt. Mmm so good! I thought I’d spice things up and make a frozen Mango-Jalapeno Margarita.
The recipe is very simple: tequila, fresh lime juice, minced jalapeno, ice and mango sorbet. I used Talenti Alphonso Mango sorbet and it was perfect. The jalapeno was grown in my garden!
This is the first time I’ve tried Trader Joe’s tequila. I thought it was pretty good… although I’m not a tequila connoisseur. It was about $20 (which is my price limit for booze, ha!). Have you tried it?
MAKE THESE. They’re so good! Now I want to make a million different flavors of margaritas. Raspberry, blackberry, peach… the sky’s the limit. Oh, I forgot – the jalapeno just adds a subtle pepper flavor with a teeny bit of heat. Feel free to add more or less!
