Frozen Strawberry Mango Margaritas

Frozen Strawberry Mango Margaritas

We rarely go out to eat these days and when we do we choose the restaurant wisely.  We have learned our lesson after making some not-so-hot choices that have left us sorely disappointed.  We practically never go out for Mexican food.  The homemade versions of many of our favorites, like enchiladas and tacos, just taste so much better than their greasy counterparts that are often served at restaurants.  I don’t miss going out for it, but I always did enjoy ordering a frozen margarita along with my meal.

While making guacamole this past weekend, I decided I had to have a margarita to go with our chips and dip. A quick trip to the liquor store and we were in business. My husband likes his margaritas on the rocks while I prefer them frozen. However since I was making them, guess who won?

These margaritas are not too sweet, yet the strawberry and mango flavors are still prominent. For us, the alcohol was also just right, not too strong but you could definitely taste the tequila. Of course, feel free to play with the amount of each ingredient to find that balance for your own personal taste.

We enjoyed these outside as we finally had a weekend with temperatures below 100 degrees. I’m so ready for fall. Until then I’ll just have to make do and beat the heat with some more frozen margaritas.

Seriously – my dog thinks she’s a person. Probably has something to do with the fact that we treat her like one.
