In this blog I’ve explored a couple of classic cocktails that are tried and true. The Copa Verde however, would definitely NOT fit into this category! In fact this drink is part of the new trend of mixing common fresh ingredients with some not so common additives. This creates some very interesting combos to say the least. In fact there have been mixologist in the bay area working too create a range of cocktails using many different vegetables. In this case we will use avocado and thyme to create a fresh tasting drink not far from a margarita.
Method: shake and strain
Ingredients: 2 parts silver tequila, 1 part fresh squeezed lime juice, 1 part water, 1 part agave nectar, 1/4 medium avocado, fresh thyme leaves, salt, water
