Valentines Day is Coming Soon

Last year at this time we were living the life in Palm Springs. Hiking around the mountains; enjoying the desert lifestyle. So in honour of that awesome vacation I want to share with you  this superb drink for Valentine's Day. Think Pink!!! Remember to make the infused tequila a few days before you make the drinks. Prickly Pear Margarita

The prickly pear cactus thrives in the deserts of the American Southwest; it's bulbous red fruit is prized for many Mexican preparations. This legendary margarita, which takes it's distinctive flavour from the fruit, comes from bartender Ruben Bernal at Las Canarias restaurant in San Antonio, Texas.


Prickly Pear Infused Vodka
  • 10 Prickly Pears
  • 26 oz bottle Tequila
Peel the Prickly Pears and place in jar. Add tequila, seal jar tightly and steep for two days or more.

Margarita for Two
  • 1 tequila infused Prickly Pear (from the jar where you infused them!!)
  • 4 oz Prickly Pear infused Tequila
  • 2 oz Frozen Limeade
  • 1 1/2 oz Cointreau
Mash 1 Prickly Pear and strain into bowl. Combine infused tequila, 2 cups crushed ice, limeade, Cointreau, and the mashed Prickly Pear in blender. PurĂ©e until slushy.

Relax... Respect...Enjoy... Dorri
