Saturday Sips: The Copa Verde Cocktail/Mocktail

The Copa Verde Cocktail/Mocktail | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
The Copa Verde (the Green Cup) is a cocktail that will take you by surprise. Although its main ingredient, the avocado, is most often used in savory dishes, its rich, smooth texture is only enhanced when paired with sweet ingredients. In this case, we’re heightening its flavor with some freshly squeezed lime, and sweetening with delicious agave nectar for a refreshing beverage that you can serve with or without the tequila.

  2. In a blender, combine the avocados, water, freshly squeezed lime and agave nectar. Puree until smooth, and pass through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth to filter out the solids. Store in a jar in the refrigerator until ready to use (can be made the night before, but no more than 1 day in advance).

  4. Make your rim salt by combining your salt and thyme together. Line the rim of each glass with agave nectar and dip into the salt.

  6. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and add your avocado mixture until it’s about halfway full. If you’re using tequila, add one shot (or to taste) to the cocktail shaker and shake until combined. Pour in a salt-rimmed glass.

Josephine Guicciardi is the nom de plume of our creative Evermine blogger. With romantic connections to Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved” love letters, it is in keeping with the blog’s themes of love and joy. The great composer writes the famous words “ever thine, ever mine, ever ours” to a woman who remains a mystery to this day. Two of the most likely objects of his adoration are Josephine Brunsvik and Guilietta Guicciardi, and it’s from these two women that Josephine Guicciardi draws her persona.
