Avocado Margarita

Avocado Margarita

Once upon a time in Kansas City I found myself at a taqueria in Westport, Port Fonda. Not only is fo the food exceptional but I had the BEST margarita, ever.



  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 cups ice
  • 4 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces Cointreau (or any orange liqueur)
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, optional
  • pinch of salt
  • 13 teaspoons agave nectar, optional
  • 13 slices fresh jalapeno, optional
  • optional garnishes: fresh lime wedges, extra fresh cilantro, extra avocado slices


  1. Add avocado, ice, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, cilantro, and salt to a blender.  Pulse until smooth.
  2. Taste and add extra agave nectar to sweeten, and/or extra jalapeno to kick up the heat, if desired.  Pulse until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately in glasses that have been rimmed with salt*.  Top with optional garnishes, if desired.
  4. Enjoy!
