Today is National Tequila Day. And in honor of the distilled beverage made from the Blue Agave Plant of Mexico, I asked my sister to share her Avocado Margarita Recipe with all of us.
Good news… She agreed! So, not only is today National Tequila Day it is also our LUCKY day. Which means it is time to pull out the blender!
My Sister’s Avocado Margarita Recipe
100% Pure De Agave Silver Tequila
Midori Melon Liqueur
Fill blender half full of ice. Add one and a half shots of all liquids. 1.5 Shots 100% De Gave Silver Tequila, 1.5 Shots Midori Melon Liqueur, 1.5 Shots Agave Nectar and 1.5 Shots Lime Juice. Remove the seed and skin from the Avocado before adding it to the blender. Blend until the consistency is creamy and the Ice and Avocado are well combined. Recipe makes two Avocado Margaritas.
My sister was very specific that the Tequila should be 100% pure De Agave Silver Tequila. I was not able to find this particular type of Tequila at our local grocery store however the nearby liquor store had 100% De Agave Silver Tequila available in a few different brands.
She also stressed the importance that the Avocado be ripe, if fact, my sister’s words were “squishy ripe”. If you have 100% pure De Agave Silver Tequila, a squishy ripe Avocado and a blender you are on your way to an Avocado Margarita.
