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!
