Fresh honey mango AND strawberry, all in the same frosty margarita? We can’t think of anything more delicious than that. Taste and See’s recipe is truly one of a kind and one that is not only delicious but beautiful to look at as well. The key to this recipe is using fresh, ripe, fruit for a drink that your guests won’t be able to resist at any time of year!

Ingredients for the mango layer:

  • 1 honey mango, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 ounces reposado 100% agave tequila
  • 1-ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce Cointreau orange liqueur

Ingredients for the strawberry layer:

  • 5 large fresh strawberries
  • 1 ½ ounces strawberry liquor
  • 2 ounces reposado 100% agave tequila
  • ⅓ ounce (2 teaspoons) of freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Lime wedges and salt for rimming the glass (if desired)
  • 2 whole fresh strawberries for garnish


  • Make the mango layer by adding chopped mango, Cointreau, tequila, and lime juice to a blender and process until smooth.  Pour into a Pyrex measuring cup and set aside, then rinse the blender.
  • Make the strawberry layer by adding strawberries, strawberry liquor, tequila, and lime juice to a blender. Process until smooth and set aside.
  • Rim two glasses with a lime wedge and salt if desired.  Fill each glass about halfway with ice, then pour half of the mango mixture into the bottom of each glass.  
  • Carefully pour half of the strawberry margarita mixture into each of the two glasses, gently pouring it across the back of a spoon or a small spatula.  It will mostly float on top of the mango layer.  
  • To create the yellow/red swirl effect, gently insert the small spatula or spoon down one edge of the glass, and then pull it out. Repeat this step two more times at even intervals around the glass. 
  • Garnish with fresh strawberries or lime wedges.
