The Prickly Pear Margarita mix is a great way to celebrate the holidays with friends and family! This margarita is a refreshing cocktail with a slight sweetness and a hint of tartness. The cocktail has many variations based on the type of tequila and liqueur used. The most common ingredients include tequila, triple sec, lime juice and simple syrup or agave nectar. A Prickly Pear Margarita is made by mixing together 1½ cup of tequila, 1 cup of triple sec, 1 cup of lime juice, ½ cup of simple prickly pear syrup (or agave nectar). You can also add 1 cup of crushed ice in the mix. Pour all ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into glasses and garnish with lime wedges or sugar rimmed glasses (if desired). Enjoy!

The Prickly Pear Margarita Mix is a cocktail made with tequila, prickly pear juice or syrup, triple sec and lime juice. This sweet, sour, and slightly bitter beverage is perfect for those who love sweet drinks but want to cut back on their sugar intake!

In Mexico, Prickly Pear fruit is known as tuna. The plant grows on tall cactus and produces yellowish-pink fruits that are shaped like teardrops. The fruit is picked before its fleshy interior becomes too sweet and then dried or canned to use later for cooking and drinks.

This is a cactus fruit that grows in Mexico. It has lots of nutrients like vitamins A, B6, C, E and K; calcium; iron; magnesium; phosphorus; potassium; zinc; copper and manganese. And it has antioxidants! So not only are they delicious and fun to drink, they’re also good for you!

The best part is that they’re easy to grow at home, if you have the right soil conditions (which most of us do). Drink up!
Our Prickly Pear Margarita Cocktail is the perfect way to enjoy these delicious, antioxidant-packed fruits.
