Recipe Notes
  • Plan ahead and make the mango shrub and riming salt a few days ahead. Once those are prepped, these margaritas come tougher in minutes.
  • This spicy salt is delicious with bloody mary's or jalapeño margaritas too.
  • Make sure you rim the glasses before adding the salt and pouring in the cocktail.
  • Use the best quality tequila for the tastiest cocktail.
