In this low-carb cocktail, avo wraps around rum like white on rice. Then Cointreau sets the blend on fire! My brother-in-law Leigh—aka the Silver Fox Bar Champion Extraordinaire—put me onto that little trick. Tweak the lime juice, zest, and alcohol to taste. Be bold and add the green powder boosters (which you won’t taste), and go craaaaaaaay-ay-ayzy with the cayenne! No, I haven’t had too many of these . . . yet.
