MANGO AND CHILLI MARGARITA

There is no solid proof who invented this fantastic concoction. One of the earliest stories of it’s invention is in 1938 Mexico. Nowadays, it’s one of the most common tequila-based cocktails and a must-add to your party menu.

Ingredients

  • 2 green or red chillies
  • tequila, to drizzle
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier Liqueur
  • 2 mango, peeled and cut into strips
  • coarse salt
  • lime wedges, for serving

Method:

  • Chop one of the chilies and, together with the tequila, place in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to infuse overnight.
  • Strain the tequila into a large bowl and add the lime juice, Grand Marnier and mango juice. Stir to combine and chill.
  • Place the salt on a flat plate or surface. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of each glass before turning it upside down onto the salt and then twisting the glass to coat the rim.
  • Serve the margarita in a Martini or wine glass with crushed ice and garnish with the remaining chili and lime wedges.

Quick tip:  To serve frozen margaritas, blend your mixture with some ice until it is slushy.
