Avocado Margarita 2 (1 of 1)

I first had a Spicy Avocado Margarita at El Camino Tequila Bar in Delray Beach, FL and fell in love. I’m a huge fan of margaritas and have enjoyed the spicy fad that has hit them, but now to add avocado to the mix just tops the chart! The creaminess is welcomed in my book in this Spicy Avocado Margarita, but you should try it for yourself and be the judge.

Yield 4 Margaritas
Ingredients
2 cups ice
6 ounces blanco tequila of your choice
1/2 avocado, peeled, sliced and pitted (03910, 12CT)
2 ounces Cointreau
4 ounces fresh lime juice (00590, 16/1QT, Orchid Island)
1/4 to 1/2 of a jalapeno, seeds removed if you like it less spicy (00814, 10#)
sea salt (CQS031, 12.5#) and chili powder (CQC041, QT) on your glass if that’s how you roll

If you prefer your Margs sweet omit jalapeno and add 1 ounce of agave nectar (992605, 4/5.75#, Sweet Select).

Method
This can be made on the rocks or blended.

Blended
Place ice, tequila, avocado, cointreau, lime juice and jalapeno in a blender, and blend until desirably smooth. Salt your glasses if you wish, and pour your creamy green margaritas into glasses. Close your eyes, take a sip, and enjoy.

On the Rocks
Place tequila, cointreau and avocado in a blender, and blend until smooth. Muddle lime juice with jalapeno in shaker. Add ice and avocado mixture to shaker. Shake with ice. Salt your glasses, fill with ice and serve! Garnish with cilantro and lime wedge.
