Magenta Margarita

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!

Prickly Pear Magenta Margarita
2 oz Tequila
3/4 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Fresh Lime
1/2 oz Prickly Pear Simple Syrup
Into your shaker add ice, tequila, Cointreau (notice I used a bit more in this recipe than in my normal margarita), fresh lime juice, and prickly pear simple syrup. Shake and pour over ice. It’s a yummy stunner, so #sipaway!

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!)
