Thirsty Thursday: Margaritas!

Last weekend my friend Brittany came in town, and we basically celebrated her homecoming for four days.

I'm not one to partake in sweet drinks, but the mango margarita at Gloria's was fantastic. It is made with pureed mango, so it tastes extremely fresh and flavorful.

Here are some great looking recipes for margs I want to try this summer:

-Blood Orange Margarita:
1 quart fresh blood orange juice or fresh orange juice
1 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 1/2 cup Cointreau or other orange liqueur
3 1/2 cups silver tequila
Coarse salt
1 blood orange wedge or orange wedge
12 thin blood orange slices or orange slices
12 small sage sprigs or leaves

-Spicy Margarita:
1 chili pepper of your choice
1/2 cup tequila of your choice
1/4 cup Cointreau or Grand Marnier
2 TBS fresh lime or Rose's Lime juice

-Beer rita (if you haven't had one, you're missing out. I had one Friday during happy hour...before consuming said Mango Margarita at dinner. Whew!)
1 oz Triple sec
1 oz Cointreau
2 oz Sweet-n-sour mix
1 tall glass of ice
1 bottle of beer (your preference)
blend for 30 seconds!

1 (10-ounce) bag frozen diced mango
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2/3 cup tequila (preferably silver, 80 proof)
2 tablespoons Cointreau or other orange liqueur
2 tablespoons superfine sugar
2 cups ice water
