DOTW: Prickly Margarita

When the question involves tequila, the answer always seems to be MARGARITA; In this case more so than ever.

Prickly pears are native to dry arid locations, very much like the agave plant that tequila is derived from. Their flavor is complimented extremely well by citrus, most notably, lime… Again, much like tequila/agave. I could go on but I’m sure by now people have skipped ahead to the margarita part.

*for the orange salt rim: zest an orange peel over the salt before rimming the coup glass with it*

Enjoy!
