This is a tequila cocktail showcasing the depth of agave, while paying tribute to the prickly pear.
A cacti fruit that demands respect, precision and love. While working with prickly pears always wear gloves and have a trusty cheesecloth available! The seeds of the fruit are edible, but I prefer to strain them out.
Some research also suggests that prickly pear cactus extract may lessen the unpleasant effects of a hangover, possibly due to its anti-inflammatory effects.
For the prickly pear juice I use: 6 prickly pears, 3 small guavas, ginger, 1 lime, 1 lemon and 3 oz simple syrup. Add all ingredients to your juicer and fine strain with cheesecloth. Enjoy the good vibes.
- 1.75 oz El Major Reposado
- 1 oz Prickly Pear juice
- .5 oz Lime juice
- .25 oz simple syrup
- Pinch of salt
- Barspoon of Boomerang Cherry Liqueur
- 1 dehydrated blood orange
Add all ingredients to your shaker tin and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Fine strain over clear ice and garnish with a dehydrated blood orange.
