DIRECTIONS

  • To make Prickley Pear Margarita Mix:
  • In a blender add your bottle (1 liter) of Margarita mix. I usually just cut the cactus pears in half and scoop out the pink flesh. Add the fruit's flesh to the blender and blend until smooth.
  • Strain mixture through a fine sieve or rice strainer. Press the pulp down to get any remaining liquid out.
  • I usually pour strained mix back into margarita mix bottle and use the little left in the bottom of the container to make my first drink.
  • For each drink:
  • Fill shaker half full of ice.
  • Add 2 oz tequila, 3/4 oz blue curacao and the juice of half a lime.
  • Shake well and strain into a 12 ounce glass that's been dipped in margarita salt and packed with ice. Pour Prickly Pear Margarita mix to the top and serve.
  • Garnish with lime.
  • Should make about 8 drinks.
