Save Recipe


3 ounces agave

1 ripe avocado

1/2 teaspoon ascorbic acid

1 1/2 ounces rum, such as Banks 5 Island Blend

1 ounce fresh lime juice

Salt, for serving


  1. Combine the agave and avocado in a bowl and mash until smooth. Add the ascorbic acid and stir to combine (this will keep the avocado from turning brown). Press the avocado mixture through a fine-mesh strainer for a smooth puree. 
  2. Add the rum, lime juice and 2 heaping spoonfuls of the avocado puree to a small cocktail shaker. Add some ice and shake long and hard. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a coupe glass. Garnish with a small pinch of salt.
