Makes: 6 drinks; about 5 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1 fully ripened avocado, halved, pitted, peeled*
  • 2/3 cup sweet-and-sour margarita mix
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup orange-flavoured liqueur (such as Triple Sec or Cointreau)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

Place the avocado, margarita mix, tequila, liqueur and lime juice in a blender. Cover and process untiil smooth. Add 3 cups of ice cubes. Process again until almost smooth; do not over blend. Serve in glasses rimmed with salt or chili-lime salt if desired; garnish with thin slices of avocado.

*Use a sharp knife and cut into the avocado straight down and around the hard pit inside. Twist into two halves--one half will contain the pit. Carefully and quickly hit the pit with the knife then with a twisting motion, loosen the pit and pull it out. To remove the avocado from the skin, ease a spoon between the flesh and the skin and scoop it out. Then, chop the avocado into small pieces.
