Margaritas have always been one of my favorite cocktails to enjoy, especially on hot summer days! From classic, to strawberry, to spicy…what’s not to enjoy when it comes to a fresh margarita?! 

Most recently, I’ve been enjoying spicy jalapeño margaritas and decided to create a jalapeño mango margarita! It’s the perfect balance of spicy and sweet!


11/2 - 2 oz of tequila

3 - 4 oz of fresh mango juice

1/2 - 1 oz of simple syrup *1/2 ounces if you prefer it less sweet

1/4 - 1/2 cup of fresh mango *muddled or pureed

4 - 5 fresh jalapeños *more depending on how many you are serving

Fresh limes for juicing and for garnish

Granulated sugar

Chili powder



The night before making these margaritas, cut a couple of jalapeños into slices and soak them in tequila over night.

Pour some simple syrup onto a plate and some granulated sugar and chili powder (mixed) onto another plate. Dip your glasses in the simple syrup and then dip the glasses into the sugar/chili powder mixture. Set the glasses in a refrigerator.

Muddle the jalapeños that have been soaked in tequila along with some fresh lime juice and the fresh mango.

If you have a cocktail shaker, fill it with ice and then add the tequila, mango juice, simple syrup, muddled mixture and more lime juice…then give it a shake, shake, shake…and another shake!

Remove your glasses from the refrigerator, fill them with ice, and pour the shaken margarita mixture over the ice.

Garnish with fresh jalapeño slices and a lime wedge.

Cheers… ENJOY!

*Swap out mangos for peaches, pineapples, or strawberries…the combinations for this spicy jalapeño margarita are endless.

I hope you enjoy these delicious, spicy and sweet, refreshing jalapeño mango margaritas! Cheers to you!
