Prickly Pear Margarita



  • 3 oz. Tequila

If you don’t know what a prickly pear is, it is the purple fruit of the spiny cactus that we have in so much abundance here in central Texas.  Oddly enough, the cactus has magnificently beautiful flowers and a very unique fruit, not to mention the spines that we’re so familiar with, and which calls for the use of pliers to pull out the big spines. (Don’t ask me how I know. I don’t want to talk about it. It’s painful just to think about it.)
