Juicy Fruity Prickly Pear Margarita

Cactus Fruit Margarita 2

Did you know the fruits that grow on Cactus trees are edible? Not only are they edible, they are delicious. They have many names – Cactus Fruit, Prickly Pear, Cactus Fig, Optunia, and their Spanish name, Tuna. I find them almost year-round at our local hispanic food market and make Margaritas with them. To remove the nubs on the skin which contain spines: slice off the ends of the fruit, make a lengthwise incision, and peel off the rind. This post was featured on BevMo!’s Thirsty Times blog.
