This spicy mango jalapeno margarita is the best combination of fruity, tropical mango, tequila, lime and a little spicy jalapeno kick. It’s easy to make and is the perfect complement to any Mexican dish.


  • Tajin seasoning (optional) 
  • 1 cup mango nectar
  • ½ oz jalapeño simple syrup 
  • 2 oz lime juice, freshly squeezed 
  • 1 ½ oz tequila 
  • Handful of ice



  • Variations: For instructions on how to make a mango habanero margarita, mango pineapple margarita or a mango jalapeño mocktail, see the blog post.
  • Adjust the spice: To increase or decrease the spiciness of this margarita, adjust the amount of jalapeño simple syrup you add. Be careful, this syrup is spicy and it doesn’t take a lot to up the spice level!
  • Line the glass edges with simple syrup. If you find that the seasoning is not sticking well with the lime juice, line the edges with simple syrup instead. The seasoning will stick very well to the syrup. You can use jalapeño simple syrup or just regular simple syrup depending on if you want it to taste extra spicy or not.
