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!

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
