Avocado soup with a splash of tequila—a good way to say 'Viva Mexico!’

Why Try? Soup made with tequila? C’mon, that’s something worth trying. Serve with a salad for a light and cool summer supper.

Foodie Byte: Food should be well chilled before the soup is blended.

  3. Refrigerate one hour before serving.
