Don't get us wrong — we love our avocados in guac, on top of burgers or just as a snack with a little lime juice and sea salt. But in cocktails? We'd never tried it.
We're definitely giving this recipe, from Avocados From Mexico, a whirl before summer draws to a close:
1 avocado from Mexico, halved, pitted and peeled
6 oz. white mescal
6 oz. fresh lime juice
4 oz. light agave nectar
3 oz. Midori
2 oz. Cointreau
In a blender, combine all ingredients; whirl until combined, Add 2 cups of ice and blend until smooth. Serve in a glass rimmed with Junior Merino's Cactus and Lemongrass Rimmer. Garnish with an avocado wedge pressed in Junior Merino's Hibiscus Rose Rimmer.
