Sweet Liberty – Something Spicy with Tequila

  • 1 oz. Milagro Blanco

  • ¾ oz. lime juice
  • ¾ oz. agave nectar
  • 1 oz. mango puree
  • Five dashes of chili tincture

Directions: Pour straight from the slushie machine and garnish with a lime wheel and a sprinkling of Tajin on + small straw.

Tasting Notes: Frozen Spicy Mango Margarita is a fruity take on the classic cocktail. It’s not crazy boozy, but it strikes a nice balance between the tequila’s vegetal notes and the mezcal’s soft smoky notes. The spice level is subtle; more of a background note, but we can kick it up if the guest wants
