Mango Margaritas with Sugar Salt Lime Rim

Fresh mango margarita on the rocks with lime salt and sugar rim. Refreshing and delicious! Reminds me of my trip to Ensenada with every sip.

When I found out that we were going to Mexico I immediately thought about two things – tacos and margaritas. Two of my favorite things in life. I couldn’t wait to head into town and get both of these things. (As soon as I got home, I had to recreate my favorite drink. The mango margarita on the rocks with a lime, sugar, and salt rim.)

We spent the day at the gorgeous Monte Xanic winery in the Baja region of Mexico. We had a tasting, then ate an extraordinary lunch outside under a shaded area in the vineyard.

I ate things that I would have never dreamed of and every bite was incredible. It was a very seafood heavy meal and I loved it.

Our tour guide took us to get tacos and margaritas in Ensenada on the way back to the ship. She was very specific about how margaritas should be made. White tequila, excellent quality. Fresh juices. Not sweet. (She also said that people in Mexico would never shoot tequila with salt and lime, they only sip and savor their tequila.)

I prefer mine on the rocks, but you could use frozen chunks of fresh mango instead. No ice needed.

    As cheesy as this may sound, this drink reminds me of meeting you on our cruise since we drank them together on the deck. Makes me miss you even more! I want one now 🙂

    I have to commend you. I, on a wild moment of creativity, tried salt AND sugar together as the rim for our margaritas. We loved it! Then, since I had never heard about combining salt and sugar for rimming any cocktail, I googled it. This recipe is the only one I have found with this wonderful combination. How did you discover it? Cheers! 😉

      I must have had it in a bar somewhere, I normally don’t get such divine ideas on my own. 🙂
