Frozen Prickly Pear Margaritas – fresh prickly pears, lime juice, and tequila! Is there anything better than a gorgeous bright pink margarita?!
I’m having a thing with the Korean market right now.
I mean, I’ve always enjoyed the Korean market buuuut I’ve definitely been there 3 times this week.
And each time I make my kids wander around because I’m not actually looking for anything and then I get super excited and shout, “LOOK AT THAT [insert obscure vegetable]”. Then I make them look at all the fish and other dead creatures and finally I try to convince them to try super spicy noodles.
Three times this week, guys.
I’m honestly shocked they haven’t refused to go with me yet.
But yeah, each time I’ve gone this week I’ve come home with a bag of prickly pears.
I’m in love with prickly pears. In loooove with them.
I’ve never been more obsessed with anything in my life. The photos I took do it the margaritas justice.
They were bright purpley pink and ugh, stunning.
Frozen Prickly Pear Margarita Recipe!
I don’t love a frozen margarita but the first time I ever had a prickly pear margarita was a frozen one down at Matt’s El Rancho in Austin with a bunch of friends so now I have a soft spot for frozen prickly pear margaritas.
And also they’re just really pretty.
So yeah, I used my standard frozen lime margarita recipe and just added some pureed prickly pears.
Just throw the peeled prickly pears into a blender and then strain them to get rid of all the seeds and that’s all you need. Fresh limes, tequila, triple sec, and simple syrup.
Salt the lime if you want – for some reason I’m not into salt on a frozen margarita which is weird because you guys know I usually coat the entire glass in salt when it comes to margaritas.
Anyway. Just make these before summer ends. And send me photos of them.
- 1/4 cup pureed and strained prickly pears about 3 medium-sized pears
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 3 ounces silver tequila
- 1 teaspoon triple sec
- 1 - 2 tablespoons simple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until it reaches desired consistency.
