National Margarita Day: recipes for slim, spicy, and even avocado drinks.

For a simple margarita, mix two ounces of tequila, one ounce of lime juice, ½-ounce of orange liqueur (e.g. triple sec), and ½ ounce of agave nectar or syrup, as recommended by Liquor.

An amateur mixologist had success with this mix: Mix 5 parts sweet & sour mix, 3 parts blanco tequila, 1 part triple sec, ½ lime juice, and squeezed lime quarter juice. 

A smokier drink can be made by adding a little mezcal or reposado tequila or replacing it with blanco.

Mash up avocado, cilantro and jalapeño in a mixing glass. Add the rest of the ingredients with ice, then shake and serve over the rocks.
