Traditional margarita recipes abound, so why not try something new? Something sweet and spicy all rolled into one?  Cut the Tabasco and chili powder portions in half for a milder flavor.

2 oz (60 ml) Mango Puree
1 oz (30 ml) Lime Juice
2 Dashes Tabasco
2 Dashes Tajin Chili Powder

1. Rim the edge of a glass using lime and Tajín chili powder. Set aside.
2. In a blender, combine tequila, triple sec, Tabasco hot sauce, lime juice, and mango puree. Add ice and blend until smooth.
3. Drizzle Chamoy inside the glass and pour in the mix.
4. Garnish with a lime wheel and a spicy mango lollipop



For the salty dog in anyone!  But a sugar rim is just as delightful for the sweeter side of you 🙂

1/2 oz. (15ml) Triple Sec
6 oz. (180ml) Grapefruit Juice
Garnish: Salt Rim/Grapefruit Slice

No, we’re not adding crab to the drink– we’re adding a SHRIMP garnish from the Boiling Crab restaurant.  You can add your own shrimp garnish, no problem!
