My newest cocktail obsession is magenta, magical, and a margarita! You’ll love the surprising flavor and stunning color. It’s a neon dream…
I admit, you’ll need one ingredient that’s a bit extraordinary. The prickly pear!
Note I’ve show a few colors here for contrast. When picking your cactus grown pear, choose the ones that are rich in a reddish-purple color and firm. To prepare, slice both ends and discard. Make a long cut lengthwise down the pear, then peel the skin from the fruit. To create a beautiful simple syrup, I have easy instructions here!
Once you’ve strained and cooled the delicious homemade prickly pear simple syrup, you’re ready to cocktail!
I’ll be heading to the lake this weekend and surprising my friends with magical Magenta Margaritas! What will you be doing…now that you have the perfect cocktail to share? (I suggest making a large batch because this margarita goes fast!)
