Ingredients makes  2

6 oz. silver tequila

1 oz. Cointreau or Triple Sec

3 oz.  fresh lime juice

4 oz. prickly pear syrup

additional lime juice to adjust tartness/sweetness, if desired

coarse salt or sugar for the rim

Combine the first four ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a margarita glass over ice.


Just a couple of tips…If you make it with the triple sec it’s a little milder for all of you that need a smoother taste. The Cointreau will make it more tangy, I actually prefer it that way, but to each their own.  Serve these baby’s with some guacamole and chips and you will be in heaven!


Pour into a margarita glass and enjoy!!


Happy boozing!!
