Give Your Tequila a Fruity Twist With This Mango Margarita Recipe

Between entertaining at home and The Chew, I have made many a margarita in my day. Well this one's a personal favorite: The mango gives the drink a little more substance and tastes totally tropical. Plus, all cocktails are just a little better for you when you add fruit. For more Cinco de Mayo inspiration, check out seven more recipes from the mixologists who took my Make Over Your Margarita Challenge, these easy decorations and my No-Packet Taco recipe, too!

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
