Kick off the weekend with these beautiful, refreshing Prickly Pear Margaritas, made with freshly juiced prickly pears!
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 1
  • 1 prickly pear, cleaned, peeled, and diced (2oz juice)
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz agave syrup
  • 2 oz silver tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  1. First, juice the prickly pear. Grab 2-3 layers of cheesecloth, place a few diced pieces of prickly pear in the cloth, wrap up tightly and squeeze over a small cup. 1 prickly pear should give you about 2 oz of juice, which is enough for 1 margarita.
  2. To make the cocktail, combine the prickly pear juice, lime juice, agave, tequila, and Cointreau in a shaker. Add in a few ice cubes, and shake until well-combined.
  3. Serve in a sugar-rimmed glass with crushed ice and a slice of prickly pear for garnish. Enjoy!
