Prickly pear cactus are known as a desert plant with showy flowers, but have you ever tasted their fruit? With flavors similar to strawberries or watermelons, prickly pear can be found in specialty teas, jams, syrups and more.
But perhaps one of the most fun recipes you can incorporate prickly pear in is cocktails. Whether it’s date night at home or you are looking to get creative with a new summer drink, this desert-inspired recipe from Iconic Cocktail is the refreshingly perfect addition to the hot summer months.
Iconic Cocktail has made this recipe incredibly easy, requiring only four ingredients and ice. It is a desert take on a classic Gin Rickey – a highball drink with gin, lime juice and carbonated water.
Simply combine all the ingredients in a glass, add sparkling water and ice, and garnish with a lime for a quick and delicious summer libation.
