Recipe

I’m not sure what I like better about this cocktail: the taste or the color. Prickly pear is the fruit of the prickly pear cactus. These cacti grow wild throughout the deserts of the southwest. They smell a bit like melon, with a slightly granular texture, mild sweet flavor, and an intense pink color.

Yes, this cocktail can be a pain in the butt to make, but well worth it!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup prickly pear juice
  • ½ cup pomegranate juice
  • 1½ cups sake
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds, for garnish

Directions

To make prick ly pear juice, peel the fruits, blend them in a highspeed blender, and strain out the solids.

To make pomegranate juice, cut the pomegranates into quarters. Using a wooden spoon, smack the sections on the skin side over a bowl. The seeds should easily pop out. Put the seeds in a blender and pulse just to break up the seeds and release the juice. Strain the seeds through a fine sieve or cheesecloth.

Combine all the ingredients in a pitcher or shaker except the pomegranate seeds, stir well, and pour into tall glasses filled with ice. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds on the top of each cocktail.
