Over the years Inspired By Charm has experimented with a bunch of unique margarita recipes. (In fact, I have an entire blog post HERE dedicated to my favorites.) Today we’re adding another to the list: Mango Margaritas.

The BEST Mango Margaritas

If you’ve been following along with IBC, you’ll know that a couple of weeks ago I made some homemade no-churn mango sorbet. It was so wonderful that I wanted to see if I could use it to create a few cocktail recipes. To my delight, I had success using the mango sorbet to make mango mojitos, mango mimosas, and now these mango margaritas. 

These turned out so good because

  • they are loaded with mango flavor,
  • they are bright and refreshing,
  • and they are so simple to make! 

When it comes to flavored margaritas, mango has always been my personal favorite. These are especially good because the mango sorbet I used is homemade and approximately 98% mangos. (I did add in a splash of simple syrup and fresh lime juice.)

Let’s shake some up!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to making mango margaritas.

What kind of alcohol is used in mango margaritas?

A mango margarita is made with the same alcohol as a traditional margarita. I use silver tequila and orange liqueur. My go-to orange liqueur is Cointreau, but any triple sec or even Grand Marnier would work too.

Do you use salt for mango margaritas?

Typically salt is used as a rim garnish for margaritas. I prefer salt, but you could use sugar. If you’re looking for something with a bit of a kick, try Tajin. It would work wonderfully here.

How can I make this a skinny margarita?

You can make a few simple substitutions to eliminate some of the calories.

  • Use a liquid stevia sweetener instead of simple syrup.
  • Make your own homemade mango sorbet (using my recipe HERE) and eliminate the simple syrup.

“This recipe is too strong/weak/sweet/citrusy.”

This isn’t really a question, but it’s worth mentioning. Everyone has a different taste level with cocktails. Some like them really sweet, some like a heavy alcohol pour, etc. When you’re crafting a cocktail, I always recommend giving it a taste and adjusting it based on your personal preferences.
