During the warm months in Mexico, a variety of tropical fruit-flavored ices are sold by vendors with pushcarts, usually stationed in the parks and in front of schools. In the zócalo - main square - several exotic varieties are available, including those flavored with the local specialty, an egg-nog like liquor called rompope, and of course, the ever-popular tequila and lime. The following ice combines the tequila and lime with the the sweetness of mango. Prep time includes freezer time. From Mexico Connect

These are great! Very refreshing. Mangos here in the states are not as sweet as Mexico so I added a little extra sugar and took Evelyn's advise and gave it a healthy dose of tequilla and it was perfect! Thanks Susie!

Mango-tequila Slush! VERY nice on this hot day. The lime juice sparked things nicely, the mango was plenty sweet, the tequila provided a little flavour whallop. Next time, I will put in a little more tequila as I, personally, would like that part to be every so slightly more pronounced. Will make this a lot this summer!
