Mix up a Mardi Gras-Rita in celebration National Margarita Day and Mardi Gras.
February 22nd is National Margarita Day!
With Mardi Gras approaching February 25th, why not
celebrate with a Mardi Gras-Rita?!
For the three colors of Mardi Gras, there are three frozen layers of flavor: green representing faith and the traditional lime flavor; gold for power and mango flavor; and purple for justice and mixed berry blended with pomegranate juice.
For the traditional lime flavor, follow your favorite recipe or use the one on the back of the Bicardi Margarita Mixer can, adding tequila and triple sec or Grand Marnier. For the gold layer and mango flavor, I used Pioneer Woman’s recipe. And for the purple layer or pomegranate flavor, I followed Bobby Flay’s recipe and added some frozen mixed berries for a little lagniappe :) and deeper color.
If you prefer to stick one flavor for National Margarita Day, I highly recommend the mango. Mango chunks are in the freezer section of the grocery store and also chilling in the produce area for quick and easy blending.
