Mango Mezcal Margaritas

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yields: 2 margaritas


  • 2 limes

  • 1 large, ripe mango

  • 2 ounces mezcal of your choice

  • 2 ounces triple sec

  • Tajin + granulated sugar

  • Garnish (such as rosemary, basil or dried chili peppers)

  • Handblown stemless wine glasses or make it a double with handblown tall glass tumblers

Preparing the cocktail

  1. Peel and slice mango.
  2. Add mango to the blender.
  3. Squeeze all the juice from one lime into the blender.
  4. Add the mezcal + triple sec to the blender and blend until smooth.

Preparing the garnish

  1. Slice the second lime into wedges.
  2. Combine Tajin + granulated sugar in a small bowl or shallow plate
  3. Use lime wedges to moisten the rim of each glass.
  4. Dip each glass (rim side down) into the Tajin + sugar.
  5. Carefully add a few ice cubes into each glass and then pour in the blended mixture.
  6. Finish with a garnish of your choice (we love garnishing with basil + dried chili peppers, or an aromatic rosemary sprig.)
  7. You can also keep it simple and classic with the leftover lime wedges.
