Jalapeño Mango Margaritas

Makes 1 large pitcher


3 large ripe mangos, peeled, deseeded and chopped
2 jalapeño peppers, deseeded and chopped
Zest of 2 limes
1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
Juice of 15 limes
1½ cups Cointreau Triple Sec
2 cups tequila blanco
Coarse salt
Limes for garnish and taste


Puree the mangoes, jalapenos, lime zest, cilantro leaves and lime juice in a blender or with a hand held food processor until very smooth. Refrigerate mango puree until just before serving. When ready to serve, combine the puree with the triple sec and tequila blanco and mix very well. It can also be blended with ice at this stage for a frozen drink. Garnish salt-rimmed glasses with limes. Of course, some folks may prefer a little more tequila!
