The Mmm Margarita (Mango Mint)

These mint mango margaritas were the best margaritas I have ever had. The texture was perfection and the flavors are perfectly balanced. This recipe is super simple and takes no time at all! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. These will definitely be a staple this summer!
If you make these, be sure to tag me. I love to see your photos!
