Spice up your happy hour with this tropical margarita.

You can make it in 10 minutes from start to finish, and no need for a high-powered blender because the recipe uses frozen mango cubes in lieu of ice cubes.

Half a jalapeño adds the right amount of punch to the sweet flavors of mango and coconut milk. For an extra festive touch, rim the glasses with honey and toasted shredded coconut before the party.
