Avocado Margarita

Avocado Margarita

Inspired by the quintessential version served at Curra’s Grill in Austin. Trust us, it’s good!


  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest, divided
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons tequila blanco
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Recipe Preparation

  • Toss salt and 1 tsp. lime zest on a small plate. Rub the rim of each margarita glass with lime wedge and dip into salt mixture.

  • Purée avocado, tequila, triple sec, lime juice, cilantro, cayenne, remaining 1 tsp. lime zest, and 2½ cups ice, preferably crushed, in a blender until smooth.

  • Divide among prepared glasses and garnish each with a lime wheel.

Reviews SectionIf you want a drink to taste this strongly of lime, then why add orange liqueur into it in the first place? The tastes and ingredients in this are not very well-balanced. I'll be trying something else next time.Anonymousbaltimore, md07/26/20
