It’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a margarita wrapped together to make the best boozy float! The sorbet replaces agave or simple syrup and the sweet, creamy mango flavor is used in lieu of lime juice.
As the sorbet melts, it blends together to give you everything you love in a margarita. In fact, I encourage you to stir it – especially if you love frozen margaritas.
This is the easiest margarita to make. Skip the mix – after just one sip, you’ll be drinking Mango Margarita Floats all summer long!
Tips for Making a Mango Margarita Float
- Chill tequila for best presentation.
- Rim the glass with salt for classic margarita flavor (you can also rim it with sugar).
- Garnish with a lime wedge. You can squeeze it for a hint of lime in every sip.
It may seem like a lot of tequila, but if you’ve seen my Skinny Margarita Recipe, you know that that’s the basis of a great margarita. The other ingredients simply accent the flavor!
If you’d like to use less tequila, you can use a little club soda! It’s a nice fizzy twist!
