Prickly Pears…You win some, you lose some! I picked up 3 prickly pears the other day hoping to make a bright pink margarita.. but I didn’t pick well. They were not pink. Here is what I made instead:
25mls Reposado Tequila
25mls freshly squeezed lime juice
25mls unsweetened pineapple 🍍 juice
Pulp of one prickly pear
I placed all ingredients in a high-speed blender and whizzed until combined. Strain very well into your favourite cocktail glass and serve with a pineapple frong and a slice of prickly pear (that’s not pink)
Result: It’s ok but not brilliant
If anyone has any prickly pear picking tips, please let me know!!
