One leftover mango equals a new margarita!

I had one leftover mango that was finally nearing the ripening stage.  When I was making our fish tacos salad for the Cook the Books Club post over An Embarrassment of Mangoes by Ann Vanderhoof, I had to search the grocery store for ripe ones.  They were all rock hard.  So, finally a week later, I had a fragrant, soft mango ready to go.

We had worked outside in the garden and yard all day.  We planted strawberries, four trees, one grape, and a lilac bush.  Around 4:00, we were ready to sit on the porch, start the chiminea and enjoy the late afternoon.

I whipped up this margarita for us to use up that last mango.  These were quite tasty and I think I will get some more mangoes ripening on the counter for next weekend!

Hope you enjoy!

Mango Margaritas

1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and diced
juice of one lime
1 cup 100% Agave Tequila
2 oz. Agave nectar
2 cups chipped ice

Place all ingredients in a blender and let ‘er rip!

This recipe made enough for four margaritas.

I garnished each glass with some frozen blueberries, mostly for color, but they were a tasty addition!
