This passion fruit mango mint margaritas with its tart, sweet, and refreshing flavor is the perfect drink to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
May kind of snuck up on me which means Cinco de Mayo is here! What do you look forward to the most for Cindo de Mayo? While I love chips, salsa, guacamole, and tacos, it’s really the margaritas that I look forward to making! This year passion fruit and mango came earlier so I’m making a large pitcher of passion fruit mango mint margaritas.
The combination of tart passion fruit, sweet mango, and mint is so refreshing. You can keep it virgin for the kids and they’ll love it or add in a generous amount of tequila and Cointreau and your margarita pitcher will be empty before you know it. I threw all the ingredients into my Vitamix and voila within minutes, I have a large pitcher of margarita for a whole crowd. This passion fruit mango mint margarita is sublime and will have you making it again and again through the summer. Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!
