Frozen Mangorita

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.
