Mango and mezcal? Yes, please! We love this combo because the sweet tanginess of the mango balances really well with the smoky flavor of mezcal. Join us in our escape to a tropical paradise with our irresistible frozen mango mezcal margarita. This mango mezcal margarita is a great introduction to the folks who have never had mezcal before. We love our blended drinks, and this one is for sure in our top five. Serving a party, make a big batch ahead of time and store it in the freezer. Be sure to check out the suggested pairing at the bottom!
In a blender, add lime juice, Cointreau, mezcal, crushed ice, mango, and agave. Blend until smooth. Rim ½ of the glass with a lime wedge, then dip into smoked salt. Garnish with a lime wheel.

For the smoked salt, we really like the San Francisco Salt Co. For the mezcal, a popular brand is Dos Hombres, but we recommend picking one that’s in your price range. Mezcal is a unique and smoky spirit made from the agave plant, much like tequila. It originates from Mexico and has gained popularity for its distinct flavor profile. When using mezcal in cocktails, its smokiness adds depth and complexity. Enjoy mezcal responsibly, as it typically has a higher alcohol content than tequila.
Complement the tropical flavors of the frozen mango mezcal margarita with the bold and savory delight of cast iron nachos. This margarita pairs well with the crispy tortilla chips, gooey cheese, and flavorful toppings of the nachos. This duo is great for hosting themed parties, taco Tuesdays, or any large gathering.
