Cucumber Infused Prickly Pear Margarita

Your new favorite go-to summer cocktail: CUCUMBER INFUSED PRICKLY PEAR MARGARITAS 🍐🥒🍹💕 a remake of the famous one I had at the @amangiri that I can’t stop thinking about. Refreshing, delicious, and pretty to serve!!! Linking the syrup HERE! P.S. bartenders & mixologists please don’t come for me for using shots as measurements haha I don’t go by ounces😂

2 shots cucumber tequila, you can infuse your own or buy pre-made at the store!

2/3 shot prickly pear syrup

1/2 shot Cointreau, or Orange Liqueur of choice

1/2 shot lime juice

1/4 cup ice

Sprinkle of salt

Optional: tajin for rim, cucumber for garnish

The recipe:

To infuse your own cucumber tequila, simply cut your cucumbers into small pieces and add them to your container with your tequila. Allow to infuse overnight in the fridge.

However, you totally can buy cucumber tequila that’s already pre-made to make things easier and faster!

Combine all your cucumber tequila, prickly pear syrup, lime juice, orange liqueur, ice, and a sprinkle of salt in a cocktail shaker. Shake to combine or if you don’t have one, stirring works just as well!

Optional: Add your tajin or salt to a plate. Use a slice of lime to wet the rim and coat with your rim garnish of choice!

Add a slice of cucumber as garnish and enjoy!! xx
