If you love margaritas and avocados, then you will love this Avocado Margarita from Disney! Until recently, this famous cocktail was only found at La Cava in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion. But now, it’s available at Frontera Cocina in Disney Springs! I spoke with Disney’s Tequila Ambassador, Hilda Castillo to get the authentic recipe!
La Cava’s Avocado Margarita
I’ve been obsessed with La Cava’s Avocado Margarita since I visited Epcot a few years ago. Since then, I’ve been endlessly trying to recreate this creamy margarita myself! Every recipe that I found on the internet tasted great but was missing something. That’s why I’m excited to announce that I’ve finally got the REAL recipe straight from Disney’s Tequila Ambassador, Hilda Castillo, at La Cava del Tequila!
Yesterday, I went live on instagram at Disney Spring’s Frontera Cocina where I interviewed Hilda for National Margarita Day — Which is today! YAY!
Not only does she share some cool information about Margaritas, Tequila and Mezcal, but she also shared that Frontera Cocina will have $5 classic margaritas ALL DAY for National Margarita Day! Trust me on this one, their classic margarita is perfect! It’s not to sweet and not too sour. It’s perfectly strong enough to make you savor every sip. Oh, and of course the fact that they’re $5 today makes them even more amazing!
Check out the interview below to hear what else she has to say!
How to Make Frontera Cocina & Epcot’s Avocado Margarita
Making Frontera Cocina and Epcot’s Avocado Margarita is super easy! First, gather all the ingredients and set up your work station. You will need a blender and clear tequila, fresh avocado, melon liqueur, orange liqueur, agave nectar, lime, ice and hibiscus salt. First, add ice, avocado, lime juice, clear tequila, melon liqueur, orange liqueur and agave in a blender.
Pulse it on high until the ice is broken up and the margarita is smooth and creamy. Run a wedge of lime around the rim of the cup and then dip it in hibiscus salt. If you don’t have hibiscus salt, you could use regular salt as well. Pour the margarita into the cup and serve immediately.
