Is there anything better than a cold margarita on a hot day? Yes, there is. A guilt-free, sugar-free version of this cocktail favorite. This is my go to drink of the summer and always a crowd pleaser. Infused with mango and jalapeno, this drink is the perfect addition to a hot summer night.
This recipe makes one margarita but you can increase the ingredients and make an entire pitcher as well.
1/2oz Jordan's Skinny Syrup Mango
1oz Jordan's Skinny Syrup Jalapeno Margarita
1 tbsp. kosher salt
1 tbsp. Tajin
Let’s Get Started
1. Mix together salt & tajin. Rim your glass with a lime wedge then dip into the salt mixture.
2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add tequila, the juice of 1 lime & Skinny Syrup flavors. Shake until combined and pour into rimmed glass.
3. Top with club soda and stir. Garnish with mango slice sprinkled with tajin if desired.
Tips & Tricks
I prefer an anejo tequila, but any tequila is just fine.
If you don't have kosher salt, and salt will do the trick. I prefer a coarser grind of salt for the rim.
No shaker? No problem. Just stir all ingredients together and pour into an ice filled glass.
Tajin can be found in most grocery stores and usually in the international/Mexican section. It's regularly stocked at Fresh Co. It's a popular Mexican spice used on pretty much everything (fresh cucumbers and fruit are the best!) to enhance flavors. It is not spicy even though it is made from chilis.
If jalapeno isn't your thing, there is also a lime margarita mix available. They also make a huge variety of flavors that you can use instead of mango. I like to change it up with their strawberry, passionfruit hibiscus or pina colada flavors as well.
