Why you should use avocado in your cocktails
Avocados add a rich, silky smooth texture to a cocktail that no other ingredient can replicate. It creates a deep and creamy flavor while keeping the drink nice and light.
Thanks to its mild flavor, we found that it can be enjoyed across any clear liquor. If you’re not into avocados, incorporating matcha into tequila, vodkas and rums plays well.
Without further ado, here are our favorite avocado cocktails you can make in 5 minutes at home.
