As a cocktail (drinking) connoisseur, it was time to try my hand at actually making some of my most favorite drinks. I mean, I am a (mostly) mature adult with a bar cart after all. So first up, in honor of my margarita pin giveaway today, we’ve got prickly pear margaritas! I searched the internet for a few recipes and tried them all to see which was best. It was a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it!
Heres what you’ll need for 1 margarita:
2 oz Prickly Pear Syrup
3 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 1/2 oz lime juice
salt and lime to garnish
To make the margarita: use the juice of your lime on the edge of your glass then dip it in salt for garnish. mix together your ingredients in a cocktail shaking or stir using a swizzle stick. Top with a wedge of lime or a cute straw and TA-DA you’re finished!
If you try this recipe, let me know what you think! Time to flex those cocktail shaking muscles!
