Mango Serrano Margaritas

Ingredient Notes For These Mango Serrano Margaritas:

  • Tequila – The brand I use is shown below. However, feel free to use whatever you like.
  • Mango – For this fruit, because it can be tricky, I use a kitchen tool to help me break it down super quick. It slices, peels and easily removes the pit.
  • Serrano Simple Syrup – If your pepper is mild in flavor, just let it soak in the simple syrup for a period of time while chilling in the refrigerator. Just be sure to discard the pepper right before making the drinks.
