Brunch fave gets a boozy twist as avocado cocktails hit the drinks menu

IT can be spread on toast, goes great in a smoothie or can even be used to make a face mask.

But now the brunch favourite is popping up in bars as the soft green fruit makes its way onto the drinks menu.

The trend has already taken off in Australia where cocktail makers are mixing them with a range of different alcohol.

Stoned Crow in Sydney served their take on the drink with two part gin, one part lime juice, soda and of course the avocado, giving it a smooth and whipped texture.

Another swanky drink spot, Market Grounds in Perth, created its own avocado cocktail for £10 ($17 AUD).

Both have since removed the drinks from the menu as they were limited edition seasonal offers, MailOnline reports.

But restaurants like Javelina in New York City and Melrose Umbrella Co. in Los Angeles are still offering their version of the drink, according to Pure Wow.

Avocado cocktails can also be made at home, with plenty of online recipes for creating anything from an avo margarita to a creamy green mojito.

In December Marks and Spencer started selling stoneless avocados, dubbed the “cocktail avocado” – but they were only available while stocks lasted.

Last month we reported how middle-class millennials are now proposing with avocados in a bizarre new trend.
