Mango Jalapeno Margarita – 3 Minutes Drink

Mango Jalapeno Margarita (3 Minutes Drink) : Sweet with a twist of spiciness is what makes this margarita the star of any party. The combination of mango, jalapeno and tequila add just the right kick to put you in a merry mood. Make this for your friends & family on this #cincodemayo or #mothersday  or just about any party. 


This has been such an action-packed week and that just by the middle of it, I’m feeling out of energy and absolutely run out …… and we made these Mango Jalapeno Margarita (3 Minutes Drink) last evening which was a perfect savior.

As many of you might be celebrating Cinco-de-Mayo today (May 05  – which is a huge Mexican Festival, a day when Mexican army won over French forces in 1862 and not Mexican Independence Day as some belief), this just fit right into the theme too 🙂 (No, I’m not Mexican but I LOOOOOOOOVE Mexican food n fiesta).

Be it guacamole / nachos / quesadilla / wraps / rice, I’m always game to eat them and Off-course Margarita’s !!! Omg, just the name of all this is making me hungry. Although I have shared a couple of Mexican Recipes ( Yes, lighter options) but I couldn’t believe that I haven’t shared a recipe for Margarita in ages!

So here comes my Favorite Mango Jalapeno Margarita which is a spicy twist to your regular margarita recipes and if you love mango, jalapeno and tequila then THIS IS THE DRINK FOR YOU !!! It just cannot get better and quicker than this.


The color is brilliant yellow and the jalapeño gives just the right kick to start any fiesta! And these are on repeat demand for today evening (Cinco-de-Mayo) and on Mother’s Day too as they are mom’s favorite too. Both (mom + me)  love mango drinks and hers are slightly less spiked or no tequila at times?

Now, most margarita recipes come laden with ‘Grand Mariner or Triple Sec’ which is an orange-flavored liqueur but in this my Mango Jalapeno Margarita recipe I’m not adding any of that as I just want to enjoy a simple mango flavored margarita with a hint of spice from jalapeño and tartness of lime juice …..

To me, that’s a perfect recipe, however, feel free to add few splashes of mariner as per your preference.


If you want to be little more adventurous, you can grill the jalapeño and mangoes together to get that smokey flavors and then follow the recipe to make a smoked version of it …. which I feel is perfect for a BBQ party.

Go ahead, make these Mango Jalapeño Margaritas and start the festivities and don’t forget Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 08, 2016. Hope you’ve already planned something fun for your mom/ wife?


~ Happy Cinco De Mayo & Happy Mother’s Day ~
