Ingredients for frozen mango margarita.

What You’ll Need

If you’ve got mango chunks and a bottle of tequila at home, you’re pretty much set to make this frozen mango margarita. Check the recipe card at the bottom of the post for full ingredient amounts.

  • Frozen mango
  • Ice cubes
  • Silver tequila – Also called white tequila.
  • Orange juice – Fresh orange juice is best.
  • Grand Marnier – Any orange-flavored liqueur will do.
  • Limes – Lemons are a good substitute.
  • Agave nectar – Raw honey is a great substitute. Don’t use maple syrup.
  • Chili lime seasoning – Feel free to use Mexican chili powder like Tajín or Miguelito instead.

How to Make A Frozen Mango Margaritas

Making this frozen mango margarita is so easy it literally only takes one step!

  • Blend. Add the frozen mango, ice cubes, tequila, orange juice, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and agave nectar to the blender. Process until smooth and no large chunks of mango or ice remain. You can also leave the agave nectar out until the very end and try the mixture without it first, then add it to taste.

How to Garnish a Margarita Glass Rim

This part of the recipe is totally optional but it does make a pretty-looking margarita glass and will give your drink a nice pop of color.

  • Add lime. Gently squeeze a lime wedge along the edge of the glass so that some of the juice sticks to it. If you’re preparing lots of margaritas, save some time by adding 1/4 cup of lime juice to a container. Flip the serving glasses over and dip them in.
  • Add chili. Place the chili lime seasoning in an extended plate. Flip the lime-rimmed glasses over and dip them in the seasoning. Flip them over again and let them air-dry for 5-10 minutes.
  • Serve. Pour the mango margarita into the prepared glasses. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.

Recipe Tips & Variations

For a spicier and extra yummy frozen treat, try these frozen mango margarita variations. I’ve also added a couple of tips too.

  • Use fresh mango. Don’t worry if you don’t have any frozen mango on hand! Fresh mango works perfectly for this recipe, but it might not be as icy. You can also use canned mango, just rinse it and reduce the amount of agave syrup to taste.
  • Make it a spicy mango margarita. Blend 1/4-1/2 of a small jalapeño pepper with your margarita ingredients to give your drink a kick of heat. If you don’t have any jalapeños, you can add 1/2-1 teaspoon of Mexican chili powder to the mixture.
  • Go alcohol-free. Skip the tequila and Grand Marnier in the recipe to make it a mocktail. If you need to adjust the consistency, use mango juice for extra flavor or sparkling water.
  • Add chamoy. Drizzle the inside of your serving glass with chamoy sauce for an extra Mexican margarita. Adding more chamoy on top will give your drink more sweetness and tang too!
  • Add sorbet. Placing a scoop of your favorite mango or lime sorbet on top of your margarita can make it an even sweeter frozen treat.
  • Blend the liquids. Add all the liquids and frozen mango to the blender. Process everything until you get a smooth mixture. Then add the ice cubes and blend again until smooth. This method helps prevent your margarita from having large chunks of ice in it.

What to Serve With Frozen Mango Margaritas

For lunch, I love to pair this frozen mango margarita with my Mushroom, Potato & Poblano Tacos, or Grilled Steak Street Tacos as the main dish. If I’m feeling like adding appetizers to the menu, I always go for my Mexican Chopped Salad with Poblano Dressing. Basically, anything Mexican or Tex-Mex goes great with this drink!

However, if I’m hosting margarita night and really want to impress my guests, I’ll serve them with my Grilled Flank Steak with Avocado Chimichurri and Grilled Corn Salad with Jalapeno Dressing.

Can You Make A Pitcher of Frozen Margaritas?

Absolutely! Depending on how many guests you’re having over, you can double or triple the recipe. I recommend blending in batches unless you have a huge blender that can take on all the ice and liquid involved.

Either way, once the mixture is ready, pour it into a large pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve. If you’re prepping ahead of time, you can also pour it into a freezer-friendly bag or container and freeze it for up to 2 weeks. To serve, transfer the slushied mixture into the blender and process it for up to a minute or until fully combined again.
