Margaritas and avocados go hand in hand, especially when the weather turns hot and humid. And at fig + farro, both can literally be in your hand at the same time with their Avocadarita.

“Avocados lend an amazing, creamy mouthfeel and an awesome light color,” says Michael Dunn, bartender at fig + farro. “Sweet orange, creamy avocado, classic margarita citrus, and a subtle background heat makes for a refreshing, unique spring sipper.”

A velvety, vegetal riff. Hello, sunny days.
