Summer Drink Week: Frozen Prickly Pear Margarita

The first time I had a prickly pear marg was the week before my college graduation. We were trying a restaurant I had been wanting to visit since before I got to campus...but you know, life. So, we sat down, got chips & I immediately ordered the pink beverage. I was not disapointed and now I love re-creating it for myself when I'm having a taco salad night. It's the perfect way to end the summer, with this vibrant pink in hand - xoxo darling, Hayden.

Frozen Prickly Pear Margarita Recipe: 

You'll Need:

(makes 1 full pitcher)
 -1 1/2 lime, squeezed for juice
-1/2 lime for garnish and juice
-8 oz tequila
-1/4 cup triple sec
-1 1/4 cup prickly pear syrup
-5 cups ice
-1/2 cup water
-1-2 tablespoons of salt water (put 1 spoonful of salt in a 1/2 cup of water and stir until dissolved)


1. Put all liquid in the blender and blend it until mixed well.
2. Add all ice and blend for about two minutes, or until you have a frothy, icy beverage.
3. Pour salt, add a little bit of lime juice on a plate, then coat the rim of your glass in lime juice and salt.
4. Pour your drink and enjoy!


You don't have to add the salt water if you like a sweet margarita. I prefer mine to be balanced, so the salt water adds a balance to the triple sec and syrup.

  1. I love love love prickly pear mojitos but haven't tried it as a frozen margarita. That looks like the perfect drink to cool down with personal time :)
