Mango-Mint Cooler

What could be easier than throwing ingredients in a blender and ending up with a cool, refreshing, and tasty alcoholic beverage? I'm not really sure. This recipe is great for cocktail parties or warm-weather evenings spent outdoors. If you'd like, you can try spearing some mango slices on a toothpick with mint as a garnish or add a single floating mint leaf into the glass.  

Enjoy it alone or with one of these 8 Quick & Easy Taco Recipes. 

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and meat removed from seed
  • 1 bunch mint, stems removed, plus more for garnish, if desired
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 3 ½ ounces blanco mezcal or tequila, preferably Ilegal Mezcal
  • Ice

Directions

In a blender, combine all ingredients together and blend until thoroughly combined.

Mango Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Mango Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
