Need I say more? It's a good way to wrap up a month of prickly pear recipes. We served this at our rehearsal dinner which we held here at the house so we could including all our friends who had traveled in for the wedding. Needless to say, it was a hit. And not just with alcohol– we had the mixture set out in a pitcher with a bottle of tequila next to it (because I hardly drink, I have been accused of making them too weak and prefer to let people make their own). What we found was that most people never added the alcohol. They drank it virgin instead. And loved it.
The recipe below serves at least four. Multiply as needed.
Prickly Pear Margaritas
6 ounces tequila (optional and based on taste)
1 cup lime juice
1 cup prickly pear syrup
1 cup orange juice
Mix all ingredients and serve with ice.
