Prickly Pear Margarita


  • 1 ½ cups tequila
  • 1 cup Cointreau
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • ½ cup prickly pear syrup (this will use 4 ounces of the 7 ounce bottle)
  • 3 handfuls ice


Getting ahold of the prickly pear syrup is the hardest part of this prickly pear margarita recipe. Once you’ve got it, it’s easy to make!

Run a lime wedge along the rim of your glasses and line with coarse sea salt.

But first: decide whether you’d like to make a single drink or a pitcher. The single drink is great for one-offs, but if you’re entertaining you can make 8 servings at a time. It’s much easier than shaking them all up. Mix together the above ingredients in a pitcher.

Add them together and stir. Then pour into glasses and serve! We’re 99% sure your guests will be over the moon about the color and flavor of these margaritas. We were, at least!
