Well, as promised I am sharing this delicious, refreshing, addicting drink! So get ready to get some chips and guacamole, a margarita glass, and some salt because here it comes!!!
I combined a couple different recipes that I found and came up with this one…it’s a keeper! Just for those of you who are still wondering what prickly pears are they are actually the fruit that grow on top of the flat cactus pad. Some say that they taste like a cross between a melon and a fig…I say they taste AMAZING!
Prickly Pear Margaritas
3 1/2 cups crushed ice
3 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
3 oz. frozen limeade
4 1/2 oz. Cointreau
3 oz. prickly pear cactus juice
3 T. sugar
Lime wedges and kosher salt for garnish
In a blender, add all of the ingredients (minus the garnish) and pulse it until the ice is completely blended. Taste and add more sugar if necessary.
Rub some of the lime around the rim of the glasses and then dip the glasses into the salt. Pour in the drink and garnish with a lime. Enjoy!
