Type of Margarita Tasted: Don Julio Especial and Mango Tango
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Don Julio Especial – Don Julio Anjeo tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice and a splash of orange juice; Mango Tango – Frozen margarita with “ripened juicey mangos”
Review: This was our first visit to Guadalajara Hacienda in Houston. We ended up sampling two margaritas that night and felt the Mango Tango was the superior drink. Their version was even tastier than the mango margarita recipe we made last Cinco De Mayo, which was especially pleasing. The Don Julio Especial looked delicious from the ingredient list on the menu, even though we are not huge fans of orange juice in a margarita. After the first taste, we knew the OJ turned a potentially magnificent drink into a tart unbalanced top shelf rita.
