This will be my final addition to "Cocktail Week" although it's been rather fun sticking to a theme by sharing a few of this summer's favorite cocktails...and here's another.
Prickly Pear Margarita
When we went to Rick Bayless' Topolobampo Restaurant in Chicago G had a prickly pear margarita and it continues to be his favorite flavor of margarita.
Sadly we can't seem to ever find the actual prickly pear here but I did come across this prickly pear lemonande recently and decided that would work to create G a reminder of his favorite cocktail.
So I brought out our usual margarita components
and put together this quick version of a pickly pear margarita. Surprising G said it did have that same good flavor and he was happy with his cocktail.
Our Prickly Pear Margarita recipe:
4 parts prickly pear lemonade
1 part (shot) blanco tequila
1/2 part (shot) orange liqueur
1/2 of a squeezed lime juice
In a shaker combine all ingredients. Shake well. Pour over ice. Add lime wedge. Enjoy!
