  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

At Sevilla, chef E. Michael Reidt recommends a mango-ginger margarita to go with the tangy grilled shrimp.

  1. 2 slices of peeled ginger
  2. 1 teaspoon sugar
  3. 3 tablespoons tequila
  4. 3 tablespoons mango nectar
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  6. 1/2 tablespoon triple sec
  7. Ice
  8. Mango slice for garnish
  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle 2 thin slices of peeled fresh ginger with 1 teaspoon of sugar. Add 3 tablespoons of tequila, 3 tablespoons of mango nectar, 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice, 1/2 tablespoon of triple sec and ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a mango slice and serve.
Notes To slice a mango for the garnish, peel it first with a sharp vegetable peeler or paring knife. Then, cut the flesh off the pit in 2 large pieces and slice them thinly.
