Can you make a mango margarita with vodka?

Yes, you can substitute blanco tequila with vodka for a different spin. The mango and lime flavors will still shine through.

Are there mango margaritas in cans?

Yes, canned mango margaritas are available for convenience. Cutwater Spirits, for instance, offers a Mango Margarita option that’s ready-to-enjoy and captures the essence of this tropical cocktail.

Should you use a salt rim or a Tajin rim?

This is a matter of personal preference. A salt rim complements the sweet and sour flavors traditionally, while a Tajin rim adds a zesty, spicy kick that pairs well with mango.

How to make a non-alcoholic mango margarita?

For a non-alcoholic version, replace the tequila with non-alcoholic tequila or soda water, and use a non-alcoholic triple sec alternative. Keep the mango puree and lime juice for that authentic mango margarita flavor.

Bartender’s Note:

When making a mango margarita, the quality and ripeness of the mango are key. Fresh, ripe mangos will give the best flavor, but well-prepared frozen mango is a great alternative. Adjust the sweetness with simple syrup as needed, depending on the natural sweetness of your mangos. This mango margarita is a delightful way to enjoy the rich, tropical flavors in a classic cocktail form.
