Mango Margarita


At the risk of sounding like a lush, I am posting another cocktail recipe (at the request of a friend). One of the things I did on my break was have a birthday party for my dear friend Kristin. She is always saying she wishes she could spend time on a deserted beach drinking my margaritas. Unfortunately we did not have a hunky margarita boy, our butler had to do. Look at these pictures of the amazing doll Angie's needle-felted for Kristin. I am always blown away at Angie's dolls. I have to say it was a pretty amazing night, for an amazing woman. We love you Kristin xoxox


Mango margarita

1 ripe mango, cubed and squeeze juice from pit

1/2 can mango nectar

1 lime

1/2 cup tequila

1 cup Margarita mix 


In a blender add mango, juice of 1/2 a lime, mango nectar, tequila, mix and ice. Blend and taste to see if you need more of lime or mango nectar.  Makes one pitcher.

To be honest I just throw everything in the blender and never measure. But I had to give you something to work with, so feel free to play with the amounts to your liking.

Did you say lush? lol!! I don't think it counts because technically, it's always 5:00 somewhere right?
That sounds divine!!! Mangos are my alltime fave fruit. Well, first comes coconut, then mango. Coconut and mango at the same time maybe. Yeah.

So what is wrong with being a lush?

A delicious sounding cocktail recipe. It sounds as though Kristin truly had an unforgetable birthday.
I can't believe the felted doll! Amazing!

Clarice, You are too funny, you don't sound like a lush at all. I love a good marguarita now and then, I have never tried a mango one. Love that mermaid doll!


Whouhh! Nat King Cole is singing in my computer and I'm really travelling throw America!

Oh Wow! I'm going to have to make one of those for my mother! She lurves Marguaritas.


MMMM..sounds delicious! It looks like it was a fun birthday party!!



I was just telling my family the other day that I could not have asked for a better party! It was wonderful. And the mango margaritas? Let's just say I had at least 3. And I rarely drink ; )

Love the photo collage, Clarice! Thanks again for everything. {{{{great big hug}}}}


Sounds like a winner!


Sounds like this would hit the spot on a hot July afternoon! Also, I LOVE Nat King Cole and "unforgettable". Did you do that? I may never go away!
