This avocado margarita may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of standard cocktails. But let me tell you something… this is one of the best blended margaritas I’ve ever had the pleasure to guzzle down.


Serving Size: 2

1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. ancho (or regular) chili powder
2 lime wedges
1 ripe Fresh California Avocado, seeded, peeled and cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups crushed ice
3 oz. lime juice
2 tsp. agave nectar
4 oz. Tequila
2 oz. triple sec
3 sprigs cilantro
2 lime wedges, for garnish

Remember to check the label when you shop.

  1. On a plate, mix together the salt and chili pepper.
  2. Run a lime wedge around the rim of each margarita glass and turn each glass upside down into salt mixture, twisting gently until the rim is completely coated.
  3. In a blender, combine the avocado, crushed ice, agave nectar, tequila, triple sec and cilantro sprigs; blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the margarita into the prepared glasses. Garnish the rims of the glasses with lime wedges. Serve.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
