Mango Margarita

I was very excited that finally we had a chance to see him perform live!
On our way back, we stopped at an Indian grocery store and picked up a crate of mangoes. These were not from India, but they had this sweet aroma, difficult to ignore. Today I used some of them to make Mango Margarita. This is a refreshing drink to end a sunny summer evening.
Hope you will enjoy this too!
