It was a great week! I was the lucky recipient of some gorgeous home-grown mangoes. My neighbor brought some back with her from her visit to family in Miami. Both her mom and sister have trees in their yard. So when a friend gives you mangoes, you make frozen mango margaritas.
The mangoes were fairly ripe when I received them making them perfect for margaritas. I cut up the fruit, pureed it and measured what I needed for the cocktails. The rest I put into an ice cube tray and froze to use in the future. Not sure what the plans are for the frozen cubes but it probably involves cocktails.
I like serving margaritas. To me they are a quintessential summer drink. Personally, I prefer frozen margaritas like my frozen peach margaritas and frozen strawberry margaritas. They are cool, fruity, refreshing and easy to make. They are a perfect addition to the Summer Cocktail Series hosted by Michelle from Weekend Craft. This series will happen on Saturdays for the next few weeks so stay tuned for more summer beverages.
