There are several theories of where the margarita first originated. To me, it’s the perfect warm weather drink – frosty, refreshing, and blissfully easy to make.

How to Make Mango Margarita

To chill, either blend in a large handful of ice cubes to make a frozen margarita or transfer half of the mixture to a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and shake vigorously.
Rim serving glasses with a lime wedge and immediately dip in salt/chili powder mixture.
