Has there ever been a better pairing than the Margaritas and guacamole?! Definitely two of my main food groups. I love this combo so much I decided to combine the two and make this Frozen Avocado Margarita!
This Frozen Avocado Margarita is pretty darn delicious. Now It might sound crazy but- you should try adding avocados to your Margaritas and cocktails- trust me! In this case they don’t end up lending too much in the way of flavor, but rather a supporting character to the tequila. But when it comes to the texture? It’s heaven. It ends up being a super creamy, frozen Margarita. Avocados are magic.
This is my first try at video and… woof. There are so many people that make videos look so flawless, but man, they are hard, and time consuming, and I love them! But really, I do love the challenges this new art form brings. It has been an extreme learning curve this week learning how to shoot and edit video. I was originally just going to use this Frozen Avocado Margarita as practice, but I think it turned out semi-decent so I am sharing it anyway! I have been learning to be ok with not having everything perfect (totally type A when it comes to my work) and I see so many flaws in this video, but I figured it’s still good to put out in the world because it’s will be good as a reference point down the line to see how I grow it’s also one damn delicious cocktail!

A delicious Frozen Avocado Margarita!
glass: margarita glass, coupe, or steamed glass
tools: hand juicer, blender, jigger
1 avocado, pit removed- frozen ahead of time if possible
4 ounces blanco tequila
2 oz lime juice
1 1/2 oz Cointreau
1 1/4 oz agave
3–4 sprig cilantro
2– 2 1/2 cups ice
garnish: black lava sea salt (or regular course salt), cilantro sprig, lime wheel
- In a blender add liquid first followed by the avocado and cilantro.
- Add ice to the blender. Blend until smooth.
- Add black salt to a plate. Take lime left over from juicing and run along the rim of half a coupe or steamed glass. Rim the glass with the salt.
- Pour the blended margaritas into the glasses.
- Garnish with lime wheel and sprig of cilantro
Freeze your avocado in advance if you can. You’ll have to add less ice to get a frozen drink and you’ll get more flavor!
