If you’re like me – and I’m willing to bet that you are because you’re reading this – you more than occasionally enjoy a refreshing adult beverage.
Have I got a great one for you today.
You read that correctly;
Here’s what ya need for one margarita, but double it and make 2;
- 2 Ounces White (Blanco) Tequila
- 1 1/2 Ounces Melon Liquor
- 1 Ounce Orange Liquor
- 1 Ounce Agave Nectar
- 1 Ounce Fresh Lime Juice
- 1/4 Soft Avocado
- About 1/2 Cup of Ice
- Tajin (Spicy Salt)
Add the first 7 ingredients into a blender and pulse until well blended.
Takes about 5 seconds.
Now, my addition to this recipe is the Tajin.
Tajin is a slightly-smoky, lime/chili seasoning salt that’s pretty popular in Latin countries sprinkled over chilled fruit. If you live in Texas, like we do, most liquor stores have at the cash register. (It’s also popular sprinkled into a beer with a squeeze of lime.) If you don’t live in Texas, you can find it on Amazon.
My dear friend Sonya, who’s from Guatemala, brought us some Tajin last summer when we hosted a baby shower for a coworker. Sonya made a fruit salad with cucumber – I know, CUCUMBER in a fruit salad – and left me the jar so I could replicate the taste.
I enjoy it sprinkled on pineapple.
I haven’t seen Sonya in a while and hope she’s doing well.
Rub a third of the glass rim with a lime wedge and roll it in Tajin. It’s the perfect compliment to the cool, creamy avocado.
And please try this drink.
It’s a great way to use that Medori you’ve had collecting dust in the back of the liquor cabinet for the past 20 years.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
And, as always,
