Frozen Avocado Margarita
Last Fall, we traveled to Austin, TX for my best friend’s wedding and it was an absolute blast! I wish we had more time to explore, but as you know, wedding duties come first! We did however have one day to hit the town and see some local spots in Austin. My other best friend (who shot these images and just moved back to Birmingham if you’re looking for a photographer) lived in Austin for about 7 years and she knows all the best food + drink spots. She insisted we go to Fresa’s to have an avocado margarita.
I have to admit that I was a little weirded out at first — hearing avocado in a margarita was kinda strange…
Have you ever thought to put avocado in a margarita? I mean, I love guacamole and I also love putting a little avocado in my smoothies from time to time, but a cocktail? I wasn’t so sure…
I decided to take her word for it, and I ordered the avocado margarita.
It absolutely blew my mind!
This avocado margarita is frozen, tangy, a little sweet, a little creamy, and a little spicy.
I immediately ordered another and knew that I’d have to recreate this cocktail once I made it back to Alabama.
I’m so excited to debut my avocado margarita recipe today with my favorite non-alchoholic spirit company, Ritual Zero Proof.
You may remember me sharing this company with you during my pregnancy. I discovered their delicious products while I was learning how to master the perfect mocktail. I spent about $100 ordering and trying many different brands of non-alcoholic liquors and Ritual Zero Proof was the clear winner out of everything I tried. Their tequila alternative is absolutely amazing!
Ritual crafts and blends together some pretty unexpected natural ingredients to give their liquor alternatives the most authentic flavor. The gin and tequila are my two favorite products of theirs, and I have continued to mix drinks with them well beyond my pregnancy.
I quickly realized after becoming a mom, that throwing back a few drinks just doesn’t bode very well the next day when you have a tiny human to take care of. This is why I like to alternate between full-proof drinks and non-alcoholic drinks. Today, I’m going to give you both versions and recipes for this avocado margarita!

1 oz agave syrup
1/4 juice of an orange

If you like your margarita spicy, add a slice of jalapeño to your blender mixture!
