"This recipe was found @ noblepigdotcom, was contributed there by Cathy Pollak & is being entered here for play in Culinary Quest #3 for the Bahamas region of our "journey". Cathy's thoughtful warning was: "When you hand these to 1 of your guests, they are going to feel like they have hit the jackpot. They are also going to want seconds, so be prepared." Cathy also suggested these would be a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo & I agree with her, but I also favor the idea of a vacation in the Bahamas & lounging on the beach w/a pitcher of these Margaritas beside me. Girls can dream 1 sip at a time. ... (Times were estimated by me & do not include the cooling time for the simple syrup) ENJOY!"

Step 1

Stir together the water, sugar & jalapeno in a sml saucepan. Bring to a boil, cook for 1 min over med-heat & remove from stove. Let stand for at least 1 hr & cool completely before using for this recipe. (If you make ahead, you can chill in the refrigerator for several dys. You may also want to pour thru a sieve if any pieces of the jalapeno have separated)


Step 2

On a small plate, sprinkle Tajin seasoning. Dip the rim of each glass in water or lime juice & dip in seasoning to line the rim of the glass.

Step 3

Process the ice, mango, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice & simple syrup in a blender until smooth. Add more simple syrup after a taste test if you would prefer more sweetness or jalapeno flavor.

Step 4

Pour mango mixture into the glasses & serve immediately.

NOTE #1 - Tajin Seasoning is available pretty much everywhere, is usually found in the produce aisle & also often seen at Costco.

NOTE #2 - You will have leftover simple syrup that you can use to make more margaritas or it can be saved in your fridge for up to 2 wks. This leftover syrup does askew the nutritional info per serving when the recipe is considered as a whole.

Tips & Variations

  • No special items are required



Wowza! This Margie is big on the Mangoes fresh taste! I LOVE it! Used half fresh Mango and the remaining amount I used mango that I had frozen. To the simple syrup I added some jalapeno seeds and membrane because I wanted more heat and also added lime zest from the limes (and because I LOVE limey flavor). I couldn't find Tajin seasoning, so I substituted, but I don't think I will use the seasoning next time. I only partially added ice because I'm waiting for the hubbie so it has to sit and I didn't want to water it down. Because these are full in flavor, making virgin would work for the kiddos. Made if for Bahamas Culinary Quest 2016. Thank you twissis for sharing.
