lime wedges and kosher salt,for rimming the glasses
Rim the glass:
Run a lime wedge around the rim of a glass. Invert glass and dip rim in a shallow plate of kosher salt until entire rim is covered in salt. Set aside.
Make the margarita:
Place mango nectar, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds.
Pour margarita into prepared glass. Garnish with additional lime wedge, if desired.
Nectar vs juice
Mango nectar and mango juice may be used interchangeably in this recipe but mango nectar easier to find in the grocery store (and less expensive, too). I also like that you can buy it in individual cans for less waste.
Batch cocktail recipe
Want to make more than one margarita? Simply multiply the ingredients by the number of servings needed.
Make Ahead Instructions
Make a pitcher of these mango margaritas ahead of time (without ice) and store in the refrigerator until guests arrive. Don't forget to give the pitcher a good stir before serving.
Make a virgin margarita
Omit the tequila and orange liqueur, slightly increase mango nectar, and add a bit of lime or mango flavored seltzer water (or even plain club soda) to the remaining ingredients.
