This Avocado Margaritas recipe makes a creamy and delicious drink that margarita and avocado lovers will love!
Summer is in full swing and that means COCKTAILS. On the PATIO.
I’ve been making avocado margaritas this summer because I’m a complete avocado maniac and I like to think that I’m being healthy while I’m drinking tequila.
I love this recipe SO much, I had to make sure that you all knew about it and gave it a try.
It’s a really unusual drink. Here’s how the experience usually goes for me:
First Sip. “Uh, whoa, this is like a smoothie!”
Second Sip. “Oooh, and there’s a bit of heat. But it’s so creamy.”
Third. Fourth. Fifth. Fiftieth Sip. “Please, sir, may I have some more?”
I like using blanco tequila because it doesn’t interfere with the lovely green color of the drink, but if you’re more of a resperado person, just go with what feels right. Like tequila. Tequila feels right.
Did I mention that I need to stain and re-seal my deck? Just putting that out there. (#MargaritaThoughts)
Alright, enough rambling. Time to go make another pitcher of margs. Who’s with me?
