And don’t worry: While the end result looks complicated, it’s actually pretty straightforward, meaning you can impress your Instagram followers without breaking a sweat. To make the layered strawberry-mango margaritas from this Eating Well recipe, you’ll need frozen mango and frozen strawberries, along with fresh lime juice, triple sec, simple syrup and your favorite tequila.
