Most people think, "Avocado? In a drink?" Avocado is a great textural element; it adds a nice creaminess, but without the cream. It's especially good in a Margarita and goes really well with chips and salsa. It's more like a great Margarita with a creamy element to it. I'm not a huge fan of salt with my Margaritas, but this drink needs it. And if you want to get a little crazy, add some celery salt and crushed green peppercorns to the salt garnish.
- Lime wedge, for rim, plus one for garnish
- Kosher salt, for garnishing rim
- ¼ cup fresh avocado chunks
- 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (optional)
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1 ounce simple syrup
- 1 ½ ounces reposado tequila
- ¾ ounces triple sec
Wet the outside rim of a rocks glass with the lime wedge. Dip rim into the salt and set aside.
In a mixing glass, muddle the avocado with the cilantro, lime juice, and simple syrup. Add the tequila and triple sec. Top with ice and shake vigorously. Strain over fresh ice in the rimmed rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
Toss salt and 1 tsp. lime zest on a small plate. Rub the rim of each margarita glass with lime wedge and dip into salt mixture.
Purée avocado, tequila, triple sec, lime juice, cilantro, cayenne, remaining 1 tsp. lime zest, and 2½ cups ice, preferably crushed, in a blender until smooth.
Divide among prepared glasses and garnish each with a lime wheel.
How would you rate Avocado Margarita?
I love this cocktail! I make it starting with Cinco de Mayo all the way to Labor Day. It's smooth and creamy and deliciously strong. I do find that my friends either LOVE it or just consider it meh. I'm decidedly in the former camp. If you like tequila and avocados, then this drink is for you. Cheers!
If you want a drink to taste this strongly of lime, then why add orange liqueur into it in the first place? The tastes and ingredients in this are not very well-balanced. I'll be trying something else next time.

It&rsquos such a fun way to serve and really excites everyone around it.

Let everyone mix their margaritas just the way they want with a variety of tequilas, mixers and garnishes. Pick and choose ingredients you know you and your crew would enjoy or want to try! I used Don Julio tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, pomegranate juice, mango purée, avocado-cilantro purée, fresh cilantro, jalapeño, avocado, cucumber, pineapple, watermelon, mango, blood oranges, raspberries and agave.
Building the board is so simple. Let me show you how&hellip
I built this board on my favorite 24&Prime x 18&Prime walnut wood board. It&rsquos the perfect size to fit the bottles and all the mixers and garnishes on.
Start by pouring the juices into small carafes and placing them on the board.
Put some diced watermelon, mango, cucumber, pineapple and avocado in small serving bowls down the right side of the board.
Place bottles of tequila and a bottle of Cointreau orange liqueur in the top left corner of the board.
Put a bowl filled with mango-jalapeño salsa, or your favorite salsa, near the bottom left corner of the board and surround it with chips so your guests can snack on it while making their margaritas.
Fill in the board with sliced jalapeños, pineapple triangles, blood orange slices and wedges, lime slices and wedges, cilantro, and raspberries. All so great for making your margarita all the more marvelous!
Place glasses alongside the board along with a bucket of ice and shaker tin so each person can make their own margarita.
If you&rsquore needing some inspiration, here&rsquos Brandon&rsquos amazing Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita recipe:
Muddle 2 jalapeño slices and a wedge of pineapple with .25 ounces agave in a cocktail shaker.
Pour in 1 ounce of lime juice, 1 ounce of Cointreau, and 3 ounces of tequila. Add ice and shake. Strain over fresh ice and enjoy!

Healthy Avocado Dip Recipe
The possibilities are endless and the chunky pieces of avocado is so satisfying!
It could be that the healthy fats in avocados fill you up, plus they’re packed with fiber not to mention the good for you nutrients like Vitamin K, potassium, Vitamin E and several of the B vitamins too!
I mixed this up without any heat, but you can always add a diced jalapeno to spice this dip up.
Try making your own chips too!
These Baked Tortilla Chips are tossed in the oven for 5-7 minutes. Want more salsa recipes? Check out this recipe list.
La Cava's Avocado Margarita
I've been obsessed with La Cava's Avocado Margarita since I visited Epcot a few years ago. Since then, I've been endlessly trying to recreate this creamy margarita myself!
Every recipe that I found on the internet tasted great but something was missing.
That's why I'm excited to announce that I've finally got the REAL recipe straight from Disney's Tequila Ambassador, Hilda Castillo, at La Cava del Tequila!
Yesterday, I went live on instagram at Disney Spring's Frontera Cocina where I interviewed Hilda for National Margarita Day. She's Disney's head tequila ambassador and all around expert!
Trust me on this one, all of La Cava's margaritas are perfect! And although I have a special place in my heart for the avocado margarita, I recommend trying a few different varieties or even a tequila flight!
Check out the interview at the end of this post to hear what else she has to say!
