This recipe is made with just five simple ingredients! You find them all at your local grocery store.
Frozen Mango – We use frozen mango that is already cubed and ready! Not only does it make this recipe easier, but it also gives the drink a super smooth finish and we don’t have to use ice cubes.
Tequila – Use your favorite tequila, we like silver tequila, tequila Blanco and gold tequila for this recipe. You don’t need to use the best tequila, just an affordable one that is good quality.
Lime juice – We use fresh lime juice for this recipe. You can also use bottled but it won’t be as fresh tasting.
Orange Liqueur – We use a triple sec or Grand Marnier for this recipe.
Sugar – instead of having to make simple syrup, we use granulated sugar. You can also use agave nectar.

Rim glasses with salt and lime and fill the glass with the margarita.
Garnish with a lime wedge if desired and serve immediately.
Tips for Making the Best Frozen Margarita
- If you find that your margarita is too thick, add a little bit of water or ice and blend until desired consistency is reached.
- If you want a little bit more sweetness, add in an extra tablespoon of sugar.
- For a tart margarita, add in an extra lime or two.
- Want a little bit of a kick, add in an extra ounce or two of tequila.
- Don’t have triple sec, you can use orange juice instead. This won’t be as strong but you’ll get some orange flavor from the juice.

Adding salt to the rim of a glass is a personal preference. Some people like the salty flavor and some don’t. If you are serving your margaritas to a group of people, it’s a good idea to have both salt and sugar available so that everyone can rim their glass to their preference.

All About Mangos
Mangos are a delicious fruit that is often used in tropical drinks and smoothies. They are sweet and have a unique flavor that is loved by many. They are also a good source of vitamins and antioxidants. We use frozen mango in this recipe because it’s easy to find and gives the margaritas a thick, slushy consistency.

It’s easy to freeze ripe mangos for margaritas! Simply cut mango cubes before freezing them. Add them to a freezer bag or airtight container and freeze overnight for up to 6 months. This will make them easier to blend later on.
When you’re ready to make the margaritas, simply add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Types of Tequila
There are many different types of tequila, but for this recipe, we recommend using silver or Blanco tequila. This tequila is clear and has a mild flavor. It pairs well with the mango and other flavors in this recipe.
