So my favorite football team, the Lions, didn’t make the playoffs this year … again. But I’m still super excited for all the playoff games. Seeing the best footballs teams face each other often leads to some great matchups.
And I would never miss the Big Game … great football, stellar commercials, and a concert? Sign me up.
All of this football viewing needs a great cocktail. A spicy cocktail. Have you ever had a spicy cocktail? I haven’t had many, but this Spicy Mango Margarita is one of my new all-time favorite cocktails.
It all starts with mango nectar, fresh lemon juice, fresh orange juice, high quality tequila, a bit of honey for sweetness and El Yucateco Green Habanero Hot Sauce that I picked up at Meijer. It is a spicy and flavorful addition that lets the flavor of the pepper shine through, complementing it with garlic and select spices and seasonings. It’s perfect for just about any recipe, including this margarita. It makes the margarita a little more savory. I can see why this is El Yucateco’s number one hot sauce.
Once I stir all these ingredients together, I add frozen mango chunks to the serving bowl. This helps to keep the drink super cold without watering it down. I always make sure to grab a couple extra mango chunks for my glass. They make the best snack! Using frozen fruit in drinks is my favorite party trick.
All of the flavors work so well together. The mango really shines through and the margaritas aren’t too strong. They pack a serious hit of spice, but I love that.
Now that you have a fun cocktail for the game, you need some awesome gear too, so be sure to check out the El Yucateco gear store where you can purchase both men and women’s apparel. Clothes include board shorts for summer, hoodies for winter, and embroidered shirts for a casual night out. No matter the occasion El Yucateco has you covered.
