Just because it's Monday doesn't mean you need to go dry. In fact, the start of the work week is even more reason to take a tipple of mezcal. To celebrate National Guacamole Day, West Hollywood's Tortilla Republic shared a recipe inspired by their avocado mezcal martini so that you can get your guac in liquid form. Enjoy it solo, or with a side of the dip and some chips. Because if you're like us, you can never get enough avos.

Here's how it's done:
