Prickly Pear Margarita Recipe

One of my favorite drink recipes is made with Prickly Pear Syrup. It is called a Prickly Pear Margarita.  I’ve won several margarita contests with this recipe.  A few friends have said it is the best margarita they’ve ever had.

Prickly Pear Margaritas are easy to make and it is a fun way to add some color to your BBQ or party.    You can’t find prickly pear syrup in your regular grocery store, but you can buy it online right here at DesertUSA in our store.
