Happy National Margarita Day!

It’s beautiful day to be alive and well in Austin, TX! It is also a great day to enjoy the unofficial state drink of Texas on a patio somewhere. There are but a few things in life that a good margarita shared with good friends can’t cure. Here a few of my favorite margaritas around town!


This is one from Maudie’s. I’m pretty obsessed with their Prickly Pear Margarita. It gets it’s gorgeous color from the prickle pear fruit of a cactus. You find them everywhere around town!

I love  a little kick with my tequila, so here is a video of the Hatch Chile Margarita from icenhauer’s. Better known as The Ashley, I took this video this week while I was doing a little work for them. I snuck in a sip and this is definitely one worth celebrating!

Feel like enjoying your margarita on your own patio? Try my recipe for a Mango Margarita!


2 1/2 cups peeled and diced mango
-about 2 large mangos, be sure they are ripe. Not much green and soft to the touch.
3 cups of ice
4 ounces of silver tequila
2 ounces of lime juice
Optional: lime wedges for garnish
1) Peel the skin off the mangoes then dice the flesh, removing the stone.
2) Combine ice, mango, tequila and lime juice in a blender.
3) Blend until smooth. Fresh fruit margaritas often have a consistency closer to that of a smoothie.
Enjoy your margarita outside somewhere in the sunshine and it will be like you’re sitting on a white sandy beach…almost.
