When I found out that prickly pear is not in fact pear with a jazzy name, I felt deceived. I had been ordering the margarita with that name for years thinking it was pear and always wondered why it didn’t taste like ear. Of course I didn’t care enough to ask, it’s a really delicious drink!
Prickly pear actually comes from the orange flower from a type of cactus. This margarita utilizes the juice made from the orange flower for a fruity, sweet yet tart cocktail perfect for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Pair it with some chips, salsa and guacamole for a party.
