Cinco de Mayo Martini Recipe Made with Creamy Avocado

Persea Martini: Seaspice

Ok. Cinco de Mayo brings lots of smiles and a celebration of Mexican victory. At the same time, we toast the food and drink of Mexico.

Earlier this week I wrote a roundup of great cocktails using Mezcal and Tequila to mark this special holiday.

And then I remembered that back in February, I was pitched a drink recipe for a martini using Baron Silver Tequila -- and me being a martini loyalist - I was immediately smitten by this cocktail’s glamour and taste. And use of the creamy avocado in a drink.

I decided to keep it for Cinco de Mayo to mark this special occasion in a unique way.

Seaspice, Miami’s stunning riverside dining destination introduced its Persea Martini.

Displaying a keen sense of balance by expert mixologist Atilla Kocsis using Baron tequila, fresh avocado, pineapple juice, lemon juice, simple syrup, and garnished with fresh black pepper, the result is a melodious Mexican medley.

Add all ingredients in the order listed above into the shaker on the rocks.
