Today is Friday!!! I am ready for the weekend. We only have one football game, and the rest is free to do whatever we want. I think we are headed up to the mountains to do some hiking, so that should be fun.
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, and as much as we love Mexican food around here, we don’t do much to celebrate. I do have something for you tomorrow though, so be sure to come back 🙂 Today, I wanted to give you a fun drink for the weekend. I know Margaritas are traditional, and I am all over a great Margarita, but I wanted to mix it up a little. I wanted something fruity!
When I was at the grocery store this week I saw mango’s all over the place, and on sale. I don’t think I have ever actually purchased a mango, so I decided to pick on up. This drink seemed like the perfect time to use it. There is one slight problem with this drink … you need a blender to make it. I only have a food processor, and it doesn’t quite do the trick. The flavor was amazing, but it just wasn’t as smooth as it should have been. But trust me, head to the store pick up a a mango, and get out the blender!
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1/3 cup mango (diced and frozen)
- 1/2 lime , juiced
- 1/2 tsp Crystal Light lemonade mix (I used part of a singles packet)
- 1 1/2 oz Vodka
- Lime slices for garnish (optional)
Blend everything together in the blender. Pour into a glass, garnish with lime wedge. Serve.
