Recipe: Peach Mango Pineapple Mint Margarita

I usually like my margaritas on the rocks, but when I saw this concoction I thought I'd give the blended variety another chance. Mint is an interesting, unique and welcome flavor to add to an otherwise standard fruity margarita. If you like margaritas and you like mojitos you'll really love this cocktail!

Yield 4 servings

1 cup raspberry pink lemonade
1 cup frozen mango cubes
1 cups frozen peaches
1 cup frozen pineapple
2 ½ cups ice cubes
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ cup mint leaves
½ cup tequila
4 lime wedges
Salt for garnish

1. In a blender, combine lemonade, mango, and peaches. Cover and puree.
2. Add the ice cubes, sugar, mint leaves, and tequila, and puree until smooth.
3. Using the lime wedges, moisten the rim of serving glasses. Dip the rims in the salt and coat well.
4. Pour the margarita mixture equally into the four glasses and garnish each with a mint leaf.

You are welcome, of course, to adjust the ingredients to your own taste. I used the Simple brand lemonade found at my Safeway near the refrigerated OJ. For the frozen fruit I used 3 cups of a pineapple/peach/mango blend purchased at Costco. I also used a dash more tequila than this recipe calls for.

This recipe was adapted from a margarita found on Delight Gluten Free Magazine's site.
