Cooling and thirst-quenching, this spicy-sweet frozen margarita is well-worth lugging out the blender for. Using reposado tequila in the refreshing cocktail lends a subtle smokiness that really enhances the flavor of the mango. A chili-salt rim adds a refreshing kick.


  • Lime wedge

  • Tajín (or other chile-lime salt)

  • ½ cup frozen mango cubes

  • ½ cup crushed ice

  • 2 ounces reposado or blanco tequila

  • ¾ ounce orange liqueur, such as Cointreau

  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice


  1. Run lime wedge around the edge of a chilled martini or coupe glass; dip rim in Tajín to coat. Combine frozen mango cubes, crushed ice, tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice in a blender.

  2. Starting on low speed and gradually increasing to high, blend until very smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Pour into prepared glass; serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

You can find mango cubes in the freezer section, or make them yourself by peeling, pitting, and chopping a whole mango and freezing the chunks in a single layer on a parchment-lined tray. Transfer them to a resealable bag until ready to use.
