Mango Margaritas are an Austin, Texas favorite.  They show up on menus in many forms, but my favorite is the classic frozen, especially  made at home.  What’s very cool about this cocktail is that it’s better to use frozen mangos.  Frozen mangos keep the drink chilled, and have a consistent flavor.  Mangos are messy to cut up, so using frozen makes cocktail hour more enjoyable. I highly recommend using a Vitamix Blender.  I bought one a few years ago and have no regrets. It will last a lifetime, and is extremely versatile.  And I really hate big chunks of ice in my cocktails
