Prickly Pear Margarita

Prickly Pear Margarita cocktail with silver tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and prickly pear cactus syrup

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
