Desert Margarita

Day 132


Desert Margarita
5 shots out of 5


Hello Tequila!  Tonight........we are friends!  We are so very much friends that I just might make myself another of your fabulous Desert Margaritas.........and one for my husband too!  Tonight I will be enjoying you and you add much to tonight's cocktail!

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  Tonight's Desert Margarita is QUITE yummy!!  Husband agrees and is eyeing my cocktail right now.  I never would have thought of the flavor of prickly pear in a margarita, but as of tonight I will be looking for them in restaurants.  I have to admit the first sip.....I wasn't sure about, but then I gave it another sip and all of the flavors just worked.  I think I had LIME JUICE on my mind because of how much of it I had to put in this cocktail and that's what threw me off on the first sip......I think I was expecting to taste a super lime flavor that I made myself believe that it was really limey.  This is definitely a cocktail that I will be making again!

Here is the recipe for a Desert Margarita:

  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1/2 oz orange liqueur
  • 2 oz lime juice
  • 1 1/2 oz prickly pear syrup
In a shaker add ice, and all of the ingredients above.  Shake them up really well and strain your cocktail into a margarita glass.


Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to a very enjoyable tequila cocktail!

Cheers!!
