Frozen Avocado Margarita

Frozen Avocado Margarita (click through for recipe)Hello, everyone! My name is Natalie, and I’m a bartender turned blogger who will be contributing all things booze related here on A Beautiful Mess. I’m SO excited to be bringing drinks into all of your homes, so let’s get started.

For my first recipe I’m making a delicious Frozen Avocado Margarita—just in time for National Margarita Day! You heard me right: instead of putting it on your toast, which I totally support, we are going to be adding it to our drinks. I promise you’re going to love them, because seriously, have you ever met a person that didn’t enjoy a margarita? There might just be some avocado left over for that toast I mentioned or, who knows, maybe even a taco. Please let there be tacos!

If you’re making these for more than one person, just multiply the recipe accordingly. You can also adjust this drink to taste. I have a very high tolerance for spice. So if you like spicy, too, you can go a little heavy handed on the hot sauce. If you’re sensitive to spice, I would say dial it back a little and maybe only use a dash or so.

I had a similar drink at a tequila bar in Disney World this past fall, and I’ve been dying to recreate my own version of it ever since. It’s a spicy and savory version of a classic margarita, and it is best enjoyed in the company of tacos. OH—I meant others.
