What makes a cocktail even better on a warm summer’s night? The nutritious, unique flavor of mango paired with turmeric! This Refreshing Turmeric Mango Marg is just about as healthy as a cocktail can get. Its simple ingredients include frozen mango, ground turmeric, lime juice, salt, and a dash of chili powder! (Plus silver tequila, of course. But if you want to make this super healthy, just leave it out!)
We’re sure you’re itching to get out the blender and make this Refreshing Turmeric Mango Marg right now, but let’s take a look at some of the ingredients first. (As we mentioned earlier, this cocktail contains only REAL ingredients. No pre-made mixes with mysterious components in this recipe!)
Mango – a true superhero!

Now let’s take a look at turmeric, another powerhouse ingredient. In this recipe, we are using Member’s Mark Organic Turmeric, which is available at Sam’s Club.
You’ve probably heard of turmeric and used it in some recipes, especially when you are looking to add a rich, robust yellow color to your dishes. But this spice has so much more to offer than its wonderful color!
Turmeric – another superhero ingredient!

Turmeric will add a robust, peppery taste to this cocktail (but don’t worry, it’s not burn-your-mouth spicy). That, along with the fresh lime juice and the glass rimmed with lime juice and chili powder, make this drink exquisitely perfect for summertime!
