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.
