Yes! It’s a margarita granita and I made it with mango and raspberries, which makes it healthy, so you should have at least two.  See how I can rationalize anything? It’s a gift, most of the time.Mango Raspberry Margarita Granita: A cool treat that's sweet and tangy with a little bite.   They're the adult equivalent to the best ice pops ever.

Mango Raspberry Margarita Granita: A cool ending to your Cinco de Mayo Celebration.

Cinco de Mayo literally translates to the fifth of May, so there’s no excuse in blanking on the date of this awesome excuse to eat lots of Mexican food holiday which is just a few short days away.  Get your Mexican groove on with these mango raspberry margarita granitas which are, pretty much, the adult equivalent to the best ice pops ever.  They are sweet and tangy and simply fresh, yet effectively impressive and delicious. They’re a party in a glass and the perfect way to finish off a Cinco de Mayo celebration.

 

Mango Raspberry Margarita Granita

Serves 2-4

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh mango, diced
  • 3/4 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2/3 cup tequila (preferably silver, 80 proof)
  • 2 tablespoons Cointreau or other orange liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 2 cups ice water
  • Raspberry syrup for garnish (to add color, sweetness)

Note:

Directions:
Put all the ingredients into a blender except for raspberry syrup and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass bakeware dish.  Cover and place into the freezer.  Rake the solution with a fork every fifteen minutes to half an hour to break up the ice crystals.
