The Prickly Margarita

This margarita doesn’t have a “prickly” personality—it’s a sweet prickly pear concoction.


  • 2 ounces anejo tequila
  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce prickly pear puree
  • 1 medium jalapeño slice
  • 1/4 ounce amaretto
  • 1 lime wheel (garnish)


  1. Place all ingredients except amaretto in a shaker.
  2. Muddle Jalapeño, add ice, and shake vigorously.
  3. Strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass, float amaretto on top and garnish with a lime wheel.

  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
