Frozen Mango Margarita is a fruity take on the classic cocktail, perfect for summer parties and backyard barbecues. It’s creamy, smooth, refreshing, thirst-quenching, and subtly spiced.

How to make frozen mango margarita.

You’ll be surprised how easy and quick it is to make a frozen mango margarita. Add frozen mangoes, freshly squeezed lime juice, tequila, triple sec, and a touch of agave nectar into a blender and blend until smooth. Then pour into chili-salt rimmed glasses, garnish with limes wedges and a sprig of fresh mint, and serve.

I like using frozen fruits so I don’t have to add ice which can water down the drink. If you don’t have frozen mangoes, you can either cube fresh ones and freeze them the night before you plan on making this, or just use fresh mango and add ice.

The chili powder on the rim balances out the sweetness of the mango, but you could omit this if you aren’t into spicy drinks. Also, feel free to adjust the spice level to your liking.

Customize it!

The recipe is pretty versatile, making it perfect any time of the year. Swap out the fruit in this recipe and use whatever you have in your kitchen, or whatever is on sale at the grocery store. Peach, melon, watermelon, pineapple, strawberry, blueberry, or raspberry are all delicious in this frozen drink!

For a non-alcoholic beverage, simply swap the tequila for mango nectar, and the triple sec for orange juice.

For a spicy frozen mango margarita, make a jalapeño-infused tequila. All you have to do is put some tequila and jalapeño slices in a glass jar, and let it sit for a few hours.

If you don’t have agave on hand, use honey instead.

You can rim the glass with salt, sugar or a blend of chili powder and salt.…it’s a personal preference.

Make ahead!

Frozen mango margarita could also be made ahead of time. Place it into a sealable container, store it in the freezer, and then just stir it every now and then to keep it slushy. The tequila will prevent it from freezing completely solid, but it won’t quite have the same smooth texture as right out of the blender.

Grab your blender and invite some friends over, everyone will love this cocktail!

  1. This was sooooooo good. We loved the smooth texture achieved by not using ice in the recipe. We did a salt/sugar rim, which was delish. Thanks!

  2. This was delish! I didn’t add the chili on the rim, I used powdered sugar!  Oh so good!!!

  3. My husband and I definitely appreciated this recipe. We rimmed with Tajin instead of chilli, definitely good. Thank you. 

  4. I am a huge margarita fan…and the thought of mango with tequila has me giddy :-).

  5. Great recipe! I didn’t realise how fun it was to put chilli powder on my rim. My partner really enjoyed the taste of it!
