Nacho Mama's Margarita
Updated: Jul 25
(a/k/a Avocado Margarita)
I hope you watch the video on us making this drink (see below). We have such fun together!!! Just like some of our other drinks, this one was developed because of our abundance -- this time of avocados! We have several varieties so for a few months, different trees give us tons of fruit. I watched an episode of a show that talked about avocado margaritas so I decided to be a little different and add Lava Juice* -- it gives the margarita a little spicy kick (but you can leave it out if you don’t like it spicy). Enjoy with your next Taco Tuesday night or pair with our Jackfruit Quesadillas!
2 shots tequila
1 shot triple sec
1 shot fresh lime juice
1/2 shot agave or simple syrup (in the video we did not use any sweetener, so this is totally optional and to taste)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Lava Juice*
3-4 ice cubes
1/2 small avocado
Habanero Sea Salt for rim (or regular salt)
In a blender, pulse everything except the avocado. Once well blended, add avocado and pulse until the avocado is just pureed. Rim your glass with salt and fill with ice. Pour the delicious, creamy avocado margarita over the ice and enjoy! Cheers!
* Lava Juice – it’s easy to make! Just soak several small red chili peppers in vodka for several weeks, shaking from time to time. Strain out the chili peppers and store in an air tight bottle.
