On Saturday, Bill turned up at the house with a huge bucket of peaches that he had picked at a friends house. He has asked for recipes, so here is mine, a grown up margarita fruit smoothie. Unfortunately since Bill is allergic to mangos, he’ll just have to imagine how delicious and creamy these are.
- 2 large peaches (I used 4, since they were small)
- 1 mango peeled and sliced
- 0.25 cups (60ml) of silver tequila
- 2 tbls Triple Sec
- Juice from a lime
- 6 ice cubes crushed
Using a food processor, blend the mango and the peaches until smooth. Add the tequila, triple sec, lime juice and ice. Blend until the ice has been broken down and the liquid has thickened to the consistency of a fruit smoothie. Pour into cocktail glasses and garnish with slices of mango or peach.
These cocktails go down far too easily. I tend not to like my drinks too sweet, but you could easily add about a tablespoon of sugar to the recipe depending on how sweet the fruit is or how sweet you like your margaritas.
