VIDEO: Sweet & Salty Guac-tail Avocado Dip

by | Read time: 1 minute

Sipping on a sweet libation has a tendency to trigger hunger signals, which is why you mindlessly reach for the nearest snack food. But instead of digging into a bowl of mixed nuts or plate of French fries, you could be reaching for a cocktail-inspired guacamole. This guac-tail avocado dip was inspired by a classic mojito and tastes just as refreshing. You’ll recognize the sweet agave, hint of lime, muddled mint and light rum. It’s the official snack of fun.

Ingredients

4 avocados
2 Tbsp. agave syrup
2 Tbsp. coconut lime juice
1 Tbsp. light rum
4-5 mint leaves, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
Juice of 1/2 lime
Pinch of pink salt

Directions

  1. Peel and de-seed avocados. Scoop into a large bowl.
  2. In a mortar and pestle, combine agave, coconut lime juice, rum and mint leaves. Muddle together for a minute or two to release the mint flavor.
  3. Pour liquid mixture into large bowl with avocados and mash together until well combined. Mash to your desired guacamole consistency – creamy, chunky or somewhere in between.
  4. Fold in onion and top off with fresh lime juice and pinch of pink salt. Stir to combine one last time.
  5. Serve with lightly salted chips of your choosing. See a few good options below…
