Habanero Mango Margarita: A Spicy Tropical Treat
Blend all the ingredients with ice until it is smooth like a slushie. When ready, you can garnish it with a slice of mango and a slice of chili. You can add or remove slices of habanero bell pepper to adjust the spiciness of the drink. You can also dispense with the cilantro and add salt to give it that salty touch. You can even add the salt to the rim of the glass as we do with the original Margarita.
If you like spicy food, this drink is for you.
The habanero chile is one of the hottest peppers in the world and it pairs perfectly with mango. With notes of citrus and fruit, it adds a fruity note to this tropical drink that will have your taste buds dancing all night long.
If you don’t want the spiciness to take over the full flavor of this drink, don’t worry: cilantro adds a salty note that, along with the freshness and sweetness of the mango, make an ideal mix.
If, on the other hand, you like the look of this drink but don’t like the spiciness, omit the habaneros for a sweet tropical delight.
