The prickly pear margarita is the best festive cocktail! The shocking pink color in this recipe is all natural, from prickly pear syrup.
- Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of a glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use Margarita Salt).
- Single drink: Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Shake until cold. Strain the margarita into the glass with the salted rim. Fill the glass with ice and serve.
- Pitcher (8 servings): Place 1 1/2 cups tequila, 1 cup Cointreau, 1 cup lime juice, and 1/2 cup prickly pear syrup in a pitcher. Add 3 handfuls ice and stir until cold.
