Desert Living Series: Desert Blush Lemonade
By L. Bremner of

frutpadPrickly pear syrup is a great condiment to have in your kitchen cupboard.  You can make Prickly Pear Margaritas, Desert Blush lemonade, Cactus Wine Coolers and Prickly Pear Tea.  There is even a recipe for Prickly Pear Salad Dressing and Prickly Pear Chicken.

If you want to try a few of the prickly pear recipes, I recommend the 24 oz bottle of prickly pear syrup.  That size will give you enough to experiment and taste your favorite recipes.  If you like it or if you are having a party buy a gallon of the syrup.   You can’t find prickly pear syrup in any store.  You can  find the syrup in specialty stores such as DesertUSA’s online store.  Click on the links to visit the storeto view more prickly pear recipes or to buy some prickly pear syrup.

In a previous post I gave you the recipe for a Prickly Pear Margarita, today I would like to share with you a recipe for prickly pear lemonade called Desert Blush.
