What You Need for a Mango Margarita
For this mango margarita recipe you only need 4 ingredients.
Frozen mango chunks: we like to buy pre-frozen mango chunks because it’s less of a hassle. Plus, most grocery stores sell them in the frozen veggie/fruit section.
Lime juice: make sure to squeeze your own fresh limes. It’s so much better!
Tequila: Always use a high-quality tequila when making margaritas. Our favorite is Espolón.
Triple sec: triple sec is an orange liquor and used in classic margaritas. It’s also slightly sweet.
Do I need ice for a frozen mango margarita?

If you’re feeling like your mango margarita needs to be sweeter, simply add agave nectar or simple syrup, to taste.
