Author Notes

In my opinion, a ripe mango approaches perfection and needs nothing more than the application of ice - or heat - to serve and satisfy. In this recipe I offer both. Start with tequila, frozen chunks of mango and pineapple with a twist of fresh lime. Add a bite to the drink with a hit of fresh ginger -- or a thin slice of jalapeno pepper. . .blend with plenty of ice. More power to you if you a happen to have a Vitamix on hand.

Serve with tortilla chips, guacamole - or mango salsa.

Fresh minced ginger, always. The powder doesn't do much for me. Thanks for the comments, Mindy and Ani...

love the title and the orange option (i hate pineapple!) I'm def making this, so thk you! one suggestion- you might want to clarify whether you mean powdered ginger or peeled minced ginger- in your ingredients.
