Cactus fruit syrup

Cactus fruit (prickly pear) syrup, used for cocktail recipes

Cactus fruit syrup is typically made from the sweet red fruits of the prickly pear cactus, a plant native to the Sonoran desert in Mexico and the southwestern United States. It can be made with other cactus fruits, rarely – like the less-sweet xoconostle cactus fruit.

Prickly pear puree can be used in place of syrup, but you may wish to add a little sweetener to your drink to make up for the less-sweet puree.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
