Avión Autumn Apple
- 1 ½ parts Tequila Avión Silver
- 1 part lemon juice
- 1 part agave nectar
- 1 part fresh pressed apple juice
Method: Add all ingredients into a shaker, shake and pour into a rocks glass.
Chipotle Cocoa Margarita
- 3 slices of orange
- 1 slice of lemon
- 1/4 part light agave
- 2 parts Avión Añejo
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Chipotle powder
- Pearl or granular sugar
Method In your mixing glass, add 3 orange slices, cut into moon shapes, and one lemon slice to up the acidity. Muddle the fruit to work out all of the natural juices and oils. Add a little bit of agave nectar to bring out the sweetness, and Avión Añejo. Fill the glass with ice and shake. To create the rim, mix equal parts cocoa and pearl or granular sugar. Then add a tiny bit of chipotle powder. Make sure you don’t overdo it with the chipotle powder, or your mouth will be on fire! Rim the edge of the glass with a lemon and set it down in the chipotle cocoa mixture. Strain your margarita over ice.
