Avocado Margarita (And More Avocado Cocktails)

Avocado margaritas are the quintessential cocktail for Cinco de Mayo, beach days, or backyard BBQs — and for good reason! They’re creamy, cold, and refreshing, with the perfect blend of sour and sweet to get the party started. Classic avocado margaritas are easy enough for any novice mixologist to whip up in a blender, and once you’ve mastered the basics, you can shake things up (literally!) with complementary flavors.

While these avocado cocktails taste amazing, please fiesta responsibly. These recipes are for mixologists 21 years of age and older.

How to Make an Avocado Margarita

To make a classic avocado margarita, you’re first going to need ripe avocados to dice into chunks. In a blender, combine avocado chunks, sweet-and-sour margarita mix, tequila, orange-flavored liqueur, fresh lime juice, and ice. Blend into creamy goodness.

To rim serving glasses with chili-lime seasoning or salt, spread the seasoning in an even layer on a plate. Dampen the rim of your glasses with a wet paper towel and place the cups down into the salt. Twist back and forth and release.

Garnish with lime wheels and fresh avocado slices. All that’s left is to find a nearby beach, pool, or open window to sit by and sip.

Avocado Margarita Remixes

Half the fun of making margaritas is experimenting to create your own signature flavor. Shake it up!

  • Avocado Beer-rita: Bottoms up! Pick up a mini, 7-oz. bottle of your favorite light cerveza and dump it neck down inside your margarita glass. The beer will drain into the margarita as you drink.
  • Avocado Sangria Swirl: This overnight cocktail is worth the wait. The night before, stir together a fruity red wine, orange liqueur, and orange and lime juice. Poor into an ice cube tray and freeze. When it’s party time, blend the sangria ice cubes into your avocado margarita mix!
  • Mango Jalapeño Avocado Margarita: Is it hot in here? Blend finely chopped jalapeños and mango chunks into your basic avocado margarita recipe for a spicy-sweet treat. Feeling more mild than wild? Remove the jalapeño seeds beforehand to lessen the heat.
