Most Fridays my Husband and I have a Friday Ritual to kick off the weekend, if we aren't going out for the evening. We have fresh guacamole, ground turkey, browned, and I have a Mango Margarita. My husband has his dark rum. I love anything mango, drinks, salads, grilled, in baked goods, and especially a home made, fresh, mango margarita.. There are really very few ingredients and it can be made quickly. So, here we go, and get your cocktail shaker ready.
Fill your cocktail shaker 2/3 full of crushed ice. Peel and dice 1 ripe mango. A mango is ripe when it turns ruby red and soft to the touch. Place diced mango in a pan and use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree. One half of large mango, pureed is enough for one drink. In cocktail shaker squeeze juice of a lime
wedge,. add 1 to 1/12 shots of good tequila, 1 shot of Triple Sec, and half of mango puree. Put top and shaker and do a happy dance, because it's Friday. Now, most people like salt on the rims of their margarita
glasses. I don't like salt, so I don't do that, but if you like the salt on your glass, do it now. Then pour Margarita in to the glass and enjoy, It's Friday, TGIF!
