MANGO MARGARITAS WITH A TURMERIC CHILI TWIST


I have a confession to make: I am absolutely obsessed with turmeric. I’ve been sneaking it into anything and everything, including these Mango Margaritas.

It all started with me trying these awesome Orange Turmeric Margaritas from Vintage Kitty. We had game night at our house and I decided to make them (along with Fire Roasted Tomato Soup and Cheesy Tomato Soup Pull Apart Bread). They were an absolute hit and I got hooked on the turmeric simple syrup.

When I was trying to think of spring inspired food and drink recipes, mangos popped into my mind. They have been really good lately and I thought I could expand on my orange and turmeric obsession.

I made concentrated turmeric simple syrup to emphasize the flavor even more and it goes great with squeezed orange and lime juice as well as the mango. I usually prefer margaritas on the rocks rather than frozen, but using frozen mangos reduces the iced water consistency that I dislike with a silky smooth one that I love.

These Mango Margaritas also fit into my picnic theme because you can pour them into small mason jars for individual servings and freeze them. When you go on your picnic, within 10 to 15 minutes they are the same consistency they were when you first blended them.

My second obsession has been Tajin Seasoning. Sprinkling this stuff on popcorn, fruit, and into drinks is my new favorite thing. And covering the rims of the glasses with it and sprinkling it on skewered mangos takes these Mango Margaritas to another level of awesome.

MANGO MARGARITAS

I could have had one huge Chevy sized margarita, but I was well behaved and separated it out into three smaller serving sizes. But I was very sad. Bottoms up!

These Mango Margaritas spice things up a bit with a delicious turmeric simple syrup and a sprinkling of Tajin chili seasoning. They can also be frozen and taken to-go on picnics.

1.Take a lime wedge and wet the edges of your glasses. Drag the rims in Tajin seasoning and put in the freezer.
2.Cut fresh mango into bite sized pieces and put them on skewers. Sprinkle Tajin seasoning on them and set aside.
3.Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Frozen mango is difficult because sometimes it seems like it's smooth but there will be hidden chunks in there.
4.Pour into the glasses, sprinkle some Tajin seasoning on the surface, and place the seasoned fresh mango skewers across the glass. Serve immediately.
5.Or if you are taking the margaritas on a picnic, pour them in individual small mason jars and freeze. In 10 to 15 minutes the margaritas will be the consistency they were when first blended.
