Prickly Pear Margarita

The Prickly Pear Margarita is a regional specialty in Mexico and the southwest United States. It’s based on a typical Margarita recipe, but uses a larger measure of syrup for a beautiful magenta color and a gentle fruity sweetness.

We don’t always take a salt rim on our Margaritas – but when we make the Prickly Pear Margarita, the salt rim helps to keep the drink from tilting too far to the candy-sweet end of the scale.

If you’d like a salted rim, begin by running a lime wedge along the outer edge of a short glass, then rolling in a plate of salt. Fill the glass with ice.

Shake all ingredients with ice, and strain into your prepared glass. Garnish with a wedge or wheel of lime.
