Mango + Lime Margaritas


My gorgeous wife Danielle is on a trip right now, and she doesn't have internet, so I'm posting one of
her delicious Margarita recipes in light of July 4th.

Mango + Lime Margaritas~
Zest of two limes
Juice of 1 1/2 limes (or more to taste)
2 cups of fresh chopped mango (best if refrigerated)
1 1/4 cup of Skinny Girl Sangria (yes, Sangria. It tastes the best for margaritas to me!)
1/3 cup of sugar (you could use honey/agave as well–I would start with 1/4 cup and just add in to taste. I do like sugar in this the best though)
A few handfuls of ice

-Zest the limes and mix in a big heaping spoonful of sugar with the lime zest. Dip just the rims of your glasses in some type of liquid (I dip it in the lime juice, the sangria, etc). Then dip the tips of your rims in the lime/sugar mixture. After your glasses are all ready to go, set them aside while you make your margaritas.
-Pour the mangoes into your blender. Then add a few handfuls of ice. Pour in the lime juice over the ice. Then pour the sangria in. Next, pour in the 1/3 cup of sugar. Blend all of this in your blender. If the consistency is liquidy or not quite fluffy then add more ice. Also, taste to see if you need more sugar or lime to your preference. Pour in your already rimmed glasses. Sometimes I put a little of the lime/sugar mixture on the top of the margaritas as a little garnish.
