Boudro’s Prickly Pear Margarita Recipe
Makes: 1 drink
3/4 cup, tequila
1/2 cup, triple sec
1/4 cup simple syrup
1 cup of fresh lime juice
1/4 cup of prickly pear cactus juice
1 blender full of ice
1 lime (cut into 6 wedges)
Simple syrup: Combine white sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir. Once the sugar is fully dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool. The resulting liquid can be stored in a plastic squeeze bottle, which makes it an easy way to add to cocktails. The ratio of sugar to water can be left to personal preference, although traditionally it is one part water to two parts sugar.
Pour all ingredients (except the cactus pear juice) into the blender. You will need a powerful electric blender that can chop up the ice. Turn on the blender and then successively add more ice and blend until it has a sorbet-like consistency. Pour into a cocktail glass, pour the prickly pear puree on top and add a lime wedge.
