Frequently Asked Questions

What are some good meals that Mango Margaritas go with?

Mango Margaritas can pair well with a variety of dishes, especially those that have a slightly spicy or tangy flavor to complement the sweetness of the mango. Here are a few ideas:

  • Grilled shrimp tacos with a mango salsa
  • Spicy chicken fajitas with peppers and onions

What is a Skinny Margarita?

A Skinny Margarita is a low-calorie version of a traditional margarita cocktail. It typically contains tequila, fresh lime juice, and a sugar-free sweetener such as agave nectar.

The main difference between a Skinny Margarita and a traditional margarita is that a Skinny Margarita eliminates or reduces the amount of added sugars and syrups, which reduces the calorie content of the cocktail.

  • Tequila
  • Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • Lime juice
