Mambo Taxi

  • Yield: 2 drinks 1x


A margarita hugged in a sangria swirl. This is about to be your new favorite cocktail.





  • 1/2 c. tequila (100% pure agave)
  • 1/4 c. triple sec (or Cointreau)
  • 1/4 c. lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. agave nectar
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 c. of ice, heaping


  1. Make the sangria by combining all the ingredients into a pourable measuring cup. Stir. Cover and place in freezer along with 2 glasses.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all margarita ingredients together (except the ice) in a high powered blender. Blend for a quick second to incorporate the ingredients. Place blender in fridge (or freezer if you have the room). Wait 20-30 minutes before assembling the drinks. This will allow the mixtures to get nice and cold.
  3. Just before serving, pull out the glasses and sangria from the freezer. Set aside.
  4. Add 2 heaping cups of ice to the margarita blender. Blend on high speed until thoroughly combined. Time will vary per blender.
  5. Fill 1/5 of the glass with sangria. In a rocking motion, pour the margarita mixture on top to achieve a swirled look. Top with a lime wedge and straw. Serve immediately.


There will be a bit of leftover sangria. To use it up, double the margarita portion of the recipe for 4 drinks. Or serve the remaining sangria with ice and additional fruit wedges. The remaining sangria can be stored for 1-2 days covered in the fridge.
