The Mango Jalapeno Margarita is the best of both worlds being sweet and spicy.

With the recipe listed on howsweeteats.com, this non-traditional margarita is one that combines various tastes for a summer-friendly drink equipped with a kick. With jalapeno peppers and jalapeno tequila both listed in the ingredients, the Mango Jalapeno Margarita is not for the faint of heart. The fruity side of this drink comes from the use of lime juice, lime wedges and 1/2 of a mango, which is peeled and chopped. There is said to be a balance of the sweet and spicy taste but no two taste buds are the same which prompts a different reaction for each drinker.

The Mango Jalapeno Margarita is not yet a mainstream cocktail but it is definitely worth trying.
