Avocado Toasts and Guava Lime Cocktails

I served these Avocado Toasts along with Guava Lime Cocktails as appetizers for a Mexican-themed dinner party. These toasts seem so simple- just mashed avocado mixed with a little seasoning, topped with radish and crumbled cotija cheese- but are unexpectedly fabulous. They are highly addictive! I loved these so much that I made several as my lunch for the next day. They go wonderfully with the tropical cocktail of lime, guava, and rum.  Cheers!
