Do you like avocados so much that you wish you could drink them? Do you like trying new recipes to make margaritas? If the answer is yes to either question, then you have come to the right place. Avocado might not be the first ingredient you think of when it comes to margaritas. However, the fresh flavor of the avocado combined with the sweetness of the lime and tequila makes for a perfect combination. Endless Simmer has a great recipe for this.
