I still remember the first time I tried a prickly pear margarita at a trendy restaurant in Las Vegas. It was deep purple and served in a tall fluted glass. Thank goodness I had a plane to catch or I would have sipped on one after the other. This is a great recreation of that memorable drink. It's not the same color as I remember, but it tastes the same. If you like different flavored margaritas and can find prickly pear syrup, this one is definitely worth a try.

Very tasty. I make my own sweet and sour mix using Splenda. Love the fuchsia color! Worth trying!

Wonderfully refreshing cocktail. I use pink lemonade for the rim and swap sweet and sour w/the prickly pear amounts. 2oz pear and 1oz sweet and sour. Serve is chilled over crushed ice! MY NEW FAV and Go-to cocktail choice of the summer season.
