Mangoes and strawberries make a magical marriage. Splashes of tequila, Triple Sec and lime add a subtle kick to the mix. For a nonalcoholic or kid-friendly version, substitute fresh orange juice for the tequila and Triple Sec.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Wonderful! Light and refreshing...especially on a hot summer day. I substituted fresh peaches when mangoes were not available. "
