Who doesn’t want a margarita while vacationing at the beach?!? Mix up a pitcher of this “fresh” and tasty version of Mango Margs for beachside, poolside or wherever-side strikes your fancy! The bottled key lime juice is a serious time saver but the addition of the fresh squeezed lime juice gives it just the right amount of fresh lime-y goodness so you can’t even tell:) Once you’ve had this fresh version, you’ll never go back to bottled again!

 

1.5 c 100% agave tequila

1 c bottled key lime juice

Juice of 3 limes

1/2 c grand marnier or your fave orange liquer

+/- 1 c simple syrup* or agave syrup to taste

1 6-7oz box of mango juice/nectar

 

Mix all the above ingredients in a pitcher. If you don’t care for mangos, skip it. If you want to change up the fruit addition, use whatever flavor you prefer…apricot, peach, pomegranate, berry, etc. Chill in fridge for about an hour or longer if you have time. If not, pour over ice and garnish with sliced lime or fruit. Cheers!!

 

*Simple Syrup: Mix equal parts sugar and water in 4 cup pyrex/glass container. Microwave 2-4 minutes or until boiling. Stir until all sugar is dissolved. Voila…simple syrup couldn’t be easier. By the way…I use Sugar in the Raw instead of the white processed sugar, and I didn’t even bother waiting for it to cool before adding to the mix!

 

Cheers!!
