This edition of the #HealthyishHappyHour calls for some heat, in the form of Mango Jalapeño Margaritas. Depending on where the happy hour conversation goes, or if your best friend is with you, you never really know if tears will flow at a happy hour. At least with these Mango Jalapeño Margaritas, you can just blame the jalapeño, then pull yourself together. That being said, we do recommend removing the jalapeño seeds, but you don’t have to tell anyone if that’s your excuse. Stick to it.

We always try to avoid extra sweeteners in our happy hour drinks because we prefer to save our sugar for cakes!
