Is it St. Patrick’s-Day-y at all. No. Does it matter? Not at all!

Create three different margarita flavors — Mango, Lime, and Strawberry — and layer them into a tall glass for a beautiful, refreshing treat with a terrific WOW factor!

Note that this recipe requires two different fruit purees. You may be able to find these in a liquor store, but if not, you can always just blend or mash up fresh fruit! :-)

If you’re anything like me, that happens pretty often, actually! Ever on my quest to try everything in all the parks, today I’m heading back to Upcountry Beverages in search of refreshment.

Atmosphere

Haven’t heard of Upcountry Beverages? It’s on that trek between Harambe Village in Africa and Anandapur in Asia. You’ll find Upcountry situated just outside of the Flights of Wonder attraction.
