Avocado smoothies are all the rage, especially among the health-conscious crowd at vegetarian tapas bar Ladybird in New York’s Greenwich Village. There, beverage director Ariel Arce satisfies her customers’ green juice craving with a light Champagne-spiked avocado slushy, enriched with shiso syrup and brightened with cucumber juice. It may not be paleo, but it’s so good, you won’t regret blending yourself a second one for a bottomless avocado brunch.
