1/3 cup cubed pineapple
Juice from 3 lime wedges
1 1/2 oz tequila
1/2 tsp agave syrup

How to Make It
- Combine the avocado, coconut, pineapple, lime juice, tequila, and agave syrup in a cocktail shaker. Muddle the ingredients and set aside.
- To make the chili salt rim, combine the chili powder, lime zest, and salt on a shallow plate. Stir together. Wet the rim by rubbing it with a lime wedge, then press it into the salt mix. Twist around until you get a thick coating on the rim.
- Add ice to the shaker and shake. Add some ice to your glass and pour the cocktail. Garnish with a lime or pineapple wedge.
