 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.

Ingredients

Serves: 1
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
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. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  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.
