jalapeno mango-peach freezes
Cinco de Mayo that is.
It’s Monday, and I don’t know about you, but any excuse to celebrate and make the beginning of the week more tolerable, I am two fingers waaaaaaaay in. Which is why I figured we could all use some giggle juice this morning. Or a stack of these tres leches french toast. There are no wrong answers on Cinco de Mayo.
I haven’t made a frozen drink since the movie, Encino Man came out about like a bazillion years ago. Remember that movie staring Brendan Fraser and Pauly Shore? One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Pauly Shore is at the Seven Eleven and he puts his head under the slushy machine and says, “wheezing the juice.” Classic Pauly Shore. Whatever happened to him anyways?
Since it’s Cinco de Mayo, you can either sip or wheez your freeze. I am kind of smitten with this version of a frozen margarita because it doesn’t have all the sugar. It’s clean, fruity, slightly spicy, but full of sass.
So, pour yourself a glass…..errrr maybe two, and cheers to giggle juice Monday!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Love this Lauren! Perfect to late spring!
Thank you, Tieghan!
I don’t remember the last time I made a frozen drink either. It’s usually straight up on the rocks!
Dude, it’s the best! I am kind of smitten with the frozen style.
I totally remember Encino Man! Hilarious – I haven’t thought about that in forever! I love the combo of mango and peach – these look delish!
Right?! I kind of want to watch it now! Thanks, Leah!
(is 8:52 am too early to make one of these?)
Cheers! Mango adds the best flavor to drinks. Happy Cinco de Mayo!
You too, Ashley! Salud!
Um I love that we used the same glasses for our margarita posts today. ha ha. I was in Hawaii in my mid teens when I saw Pauly Shore on the SAME beach we were at for vacation. It was during his totally pauly/encino man days. When we were flying home I heard in the airport ” paging Mr. P Shore. Mr P Shore” and I thought ” NO WAY he is on our flight” sure enough and they messed up his seats so he was stuck back in coach right next to me. People were leaning over me to get his autograph. It was crazy. He was actually really nice and you could tell he was annoyed that people wanted him to say stuff like wheezing the juice ( Which by the way, I totally say that) and he just wanted to be left alone. My mom and I chatted with him though. Crazy huh? I have more mangoes left and jalapenos I think I might just make one of these today. Or 3 or 4…
Seriously, BEST STORY EVER!!! You are my hero! And cheers to great minds who think alike:)
ENCINO MAN!! I’ve probably seen this movie 20 times and I need to watch it again. One of my favorite parts of the movie (oooooof course) is when BF wheezes the juice. Wheeze the juice!!!
Okay, these freezes are killing me. Peach and jalapeno and booze. Need!
YES!! Isn’t it the best? Cheers, friend!
Love this, Lauren! You can’t go wrong with margaritas anytime, let’s have some in Miami!
Dude, so stoked. Will tackle hug you!!
Oh my!! Now this is a cocktail I gotta try!
You will love it! Thanks, Marla1
Wow, I would like one of those now! 🙂 Sounds so interesting with the Jalapenos… 🙂
You gotta try it, Tina! 🙂 Cheers!
how would you suggest making this non-alcoholic version of this?
Hi! I would just omit the alcohol all together! It will still taste great!

Indeed!! Thanks, Christine! Salud:)
Girl, this drink is freaking fantastic! Such a fun flavour!
Why, thank you, Katrina! 🙂
Monday, margaritas and Cinco de Mayo – this is like the holy tequila trifecta!!
Can I have this WITH my tres leches french toast? Please and thank you. (Um, PS. See you next week WHATTTTT????)
That spicy sweet combo sounds fabulous!
Mmm, I love my spicy with my sweet and paired with booze. Great cocktail!
Girl, I need this in my system RIGHT.NOW. I love mango/peach and the jalapeno must give it an incredible kick. Your photos are gorgeous!
Well now I”m kind of happy I’m behind on post reading because if there’s anything better than giggle juice Monday, it’s giggle juice FRIDAY.
