Mezcal Margarita with California Avocado


2015 All American Recipe Contest Winner – Beverage Category

You won’t be confusing this avocado cocktail with some kind of veggie drink…it’s definitely an alcohol filled cocktail, but the avocado gives it a richness and a slight bit of sweetness. The grapefruit combined with the avocado is a pairing as natural as Fred and Ginger.


Serves: 1

2 oz. fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (I used a ruby red grapefruit)
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz. reposado tequila
1/2 oz. mezcal
1/4 oz. absinthe
2 Tbsp. agave nectar
1/4 cup ripe, Fresh California Avocado
As needed ice
As needed Maldon Sea Salt
10 fresh tarragon leaves

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.

  1. Place first 7 ingredients into the blender. Add 1/2 cup ice. Buzz until creamy.
  2. Pour into a well-chilled glass. Top with a small handful of crushed ice. Sprinkle the ice with the sea salt. Garnish with tarragon and 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.
