Spicy Jalapeño Mango Margarita
Everyone who likes them, loves a good margarita. This Spicy Jalapeño Mango Margarita takes this favorite Mexican libation to a whole other flavor level with only 3 ingredients. A delicious margarita doesn’t get any easier than this because all the flavor and sweetness comes from mango sorbet.
No need to mess with overly sweet mixes when making this drink. Simply defrost the sorbet (if you don’t like mango, use any flavor you like) mix and serve.
There are 2 types of margarita drinkers, ones who like a salt rim and those who don’t. I’m a don’t. But, I do like it with this version. Maybe it’s the lime chili salt rim that I like?
If you’re looking for a more classic margarita, I also have a delicious Lemon Lime Margarita recipe.
Speaking of the lime chili salt rim, this Spicy Jalapeño Mango Margarita is made using mild chili pepper because I think the drink itself is spicy enough. The mild brings a lovely earthy flavor that pairs well with the sweet and salt. You can use spicy chili powder if you wish.
To get a good coating on the rim of the glass, it’s best to use a shallow bowl that is just slightly larger in circumference than the glass you are using. This prevents the mix spreading out too much and preventing it stick to the rim.
I like to make my own salt rim mix because I always have the spices in my cabinet and I can control how mild or spicy I want it. Store bought Mexican Tajin spice blend is an easy option too.
To a the shallow bowl, mix zest of 1 lime, chili powder of choice, and salt. Mix well. Rub the flesh of a fresh lime around the rim of your glasses then dip and turn the glass in the spice/salt mix.
