Celebrating food holidays is a joyous occasion. Dos Caminos restaurant and Sauza® Tequila teamed up to offer some delicious Guac and Cocktail combinations. The recipes below represent the sweet & spicy flavors of a Sauza Mango Margarita and Chipotle-Goat Cheese Guacamole.
The sweet and fruity flavors of the Mango Margarita offset the spicy and smoky flavors of the Chipotle-Goat Cheese Guacamole. The recipes for both are easy to whip up at home and serve. Check out the list of ingredients and instructions below. Make sure to serve these up tomorrow, September 16 for National Guacamole Day.
Marvelous Mango Margarita
1 part Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
½ part JDK & Sons™ O3 Premium Orange Liqueur
½ large ripe mango
2 parts fresh orange juice
⅔ part lime juice
½ part simple syrup
4 parts ice
Preparation: Peel, seed and chop your mango. If you have time you can freeze your prepared mango at this point. Otherwise, put all ingredients except for the ice into your blender and blend until smooth. Then add the ice. Pour the margarita into a glass and enjoy!
