Cat sent me a text from Epcot yesterday asking which drink at Cava del Tequila I was partial to. I wrote her back and told her to go with the avocado margarita. I woke up this morning to her reply: "It was so yummy! From here on out I put half an avocado in all my adult beverages."

Of course, that got me thinking about what adult beverages could benefit from avocado. Here's the list I came up with:

* Cosmo-cado - vodka, cranberry, and avocado. The flavor might be ok, but I worry it would be mudslide brown.

* Pina-vocado - rum, pineapple, and avocado. I want to try that!

* Avo-colada - rum, coconut, and avocado. The jury is out.

* Avo-jito - rum, lime, mint, and avocado. Scott the mojito purist wouldn't appreciate this at all!

* Avocado slide - vodka, Kahlua, and avocado. *horf!* No thank you!

*Avocado daiquiri - rum, ice, and avocado. Why not?

Anyone else have a good drink idea? Or a terrible one?

Here's mine:

Avo Maria - Vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, celery salt, pepper and avocado with a skewer of grilled shrimp, avocado and grape tomatoes.

It's a drink and an appetizer in one. The next Bloody Mary I make will definitely be an Avo Maria!

sounds interesting...but I think you need to blend the avocado, and I've always seen Blood Marys on the rocks.

Let me know how it comes out!!
