I love mangos. I can never escape the feeling that the flavor in my mouth is tropical, exotic, and on so sweet. I rarely eat a mango by itself but prefer to combine it into salads, salsas, and beverages. Here is the perfect mango beverage: a Mango Margarita with loads of fruit. It’s an ideal weekend cocktail. The sweet but powerful flavor can complement spicy foods from anywhere on the planet.

This drink is about as easy a mixture as you can imagine. It ranks very high on the flavor-to-effort scale.
