May is just about upon us and with Spring in full swing here in Southern California that means lots of get togethers!

We are entering the California Avocados season and they are ripe and delicious. I just love the creaminess of California avocados and the slightly nutty taste. One of my favorite ways to eat avocados is right off the spoon, avocados are not only nutritious and delicious they are my favorite color…did you know my favorite color is green? Just thought I’d share that with you!

This fun and creamy margarita will sure get your celebrating started right, even if you make them for lunch and enjoy the beauty of the day all to yourself.

Avocado and Strawberry Margaritas
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ oz tequila
  • 1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1.3 oz cointreu
  • ½ ripe diced California Avocado
  • 1-2 tablespoon simple syrup
  • 1 cup ice
  • Strawberry
  • 5 strawberries
  • ¼ cup ice
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup
  • sprinkles for rimming glass
Instructions
  1. In drink blender add tequila, lime juice, cointreu, avocado along with simple syrup and ice.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Rim glasses with lime wedge from juicing
  4. Dip rim of glass into shallow plate of sprinkles.
  5. Pour avocado portion of the drink into the glass (or glasses if you are making 2 smaller drinks like I did)
  6. Rinse out the mixer glass and begin making the strawberry portion
  7. Place strawberries, simple syrup and ice into mixer and blend until smooth
  8. Pour strawberry puree on top of avocado margarita and enjoy!
Notes
*Simple syrup
place one cup water in saucepan with one cup sugar and heat until sugar is completely dissolved over medium heat while stirring occasionally. Allow syrup to cool.
Simple syrup is an easy way to sweeten iced tea, lemonade or any drink. Store at room temperature for one week or in fridge for up to three weeks. I place the simple syrup in a squeeze bottle which makes it easy to use a small amount at a time to adjust your sweetness in drinks easily.

 

 

So get  your MARGARITAS on and start celebrating…

Maybe your and your neighbors end up hanging out because it’s such a nice night and the summer heat is not quite killing you yet. You will be able to dig out a bag of frozen avocado and in minutes have some delicious guacamole, or maybe you want to make some pasta and enjoy a delicious Avocado  Cilantro Lime Sauce on it…. or maybe you’d like to enjoy a fun  Margarita and avocados and Margaritas go so well together it only seems natural to have these items on hand.
