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!
Frozen Avocado Margarita, serves 1
2 oz tequila
1 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz agave nectar
avocado cut into quarters
salt and chili pepper
lime wheel for garnish
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.
In a shallow bowl or on a plate, mix the salt and chili pepper. Run a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and then dip in the salt mixture so that it is evenly distributed.
I don’t know about you, but I love it when there is enough salt for every sip of my margarita. Salt makes this savory drink so much tastier, so be generous!
Juice your limes and add tequila, lime, agave, tabasco and 1/4 avocado to a blender with ice.
Blend on the smoothie setting and pour into your salt rimmed glasses. Extra points for cute glassware like these vintage Blendo margarita glasses! I found a whole set at a Goodwill. Best find ever!
I absolutely love how this drink turned out! 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.
If you decide to make this recipe, I would love to hear about it. Cheers, everyone, and Happy National Margarita Day! xo. Natalie

Oh, I love cocktails and love these posts. I would like to know though too, the flavour of this cocktail? Could you (roughly) describe it Natalie? Sorry if thats sounds pedantic, but Ive never heard of advocado in a drink before (I know, I need to get out more!) would love a description! Thanks Love Rachel xxx

Today more than ever I am SO sad I’m allergic to avocado!!!! Looks so good!

Interesting. I was always hesitant about avocado in something I’d drink, but then I had it in a smoothie, and it was DELICIOUS.
Wow how great does this look!!

These sound amazing to try, thanks for posting & welcome Natalie!
Yum! My husband and I love to grab avocado smoothies when we get Vietnamese food, so I can just imagine how good these would be. Love the idea of the spice to balance out the savory-sweetness of the drink. Can’t wait to try!
