Prickly Pear Margarita Recipe

The raspberry-watermelon like taste of prickly pear gives an amazing touch to the palatability of this margarita. Since this cactus fruit has tiny hair like spikes and requires much care to extract the fruit from its protective layer, this recipe directly uses its syrup which is readily available in super stores. However, if you really want to have all natural taste then just make a homemade prickly pear syrup from its fruit.
