Spicy Mango Margarita with Chili Salted Rim

photo-273Mmm whats more refreshing than a chilled margarita on a hot summer day? Perhaps only a swim in the ocean! I’ve been asked a lot over the last week about my last post and if I am changing the name of my blog… Don’t worry Ski Boots in the Kitchen is not changing its name! My post “from Mrs. Hardy’s Kitchen” was just the first post I’ve done since being married and changed my last name! Now that I’ve cleared things up and you’ll be able to sleep… Onto the best margarita recipe you’ll ever try! photo-271Depending on how much spice you like you can substitute the Serrano chili for a Jalapeno chili which is a bit less intense, however the Serrano gives this marg the perfect KICK! The chili salted rim also contributes to the perfect fiesta in your mouth!

Spicy Mango Margarita (Makes 1 pitcher)


  • one 16oz bag frozen mango chunks (or 3 cups fresh mango)
  • 3-4 slices Serrano Chili or Jalapeno Chili (spice to your taste)

For the rim
