Prickly Pear Frozen Margarita
This margarita comes from Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor by Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack, Veronica Gonzalez-Smith, and Evanglina Soza, courtesy of Hippocrene Books, Inc. The author of the recipe writes: Grandma had several nopales (cactus paddles) growing along the fence in her backyard in El Paso. Together we would pick the tunas (prickly pears) off the cactus, peel, and eat the sweet fruit. As a tribute to my Grandma – who loved her tunas and color de rosa (the color pink) – I dedicate this beautiful pink margarita in her honor.”

Don't worry, there's no real tuna in this margarita — it's Spanish for "prickly pear," so Don Julio says. But the prickly pear is what makes this Don Julio margarita so enticing. Says Don Love (who created the marg), "This drink is inspired by a soda commonly found in Southern California called the 'Cactus Cooler,' and is a twist on a traditional margarita with the addition of prickly pear purée to the recipe. This drink is easy to make yet unique and delicious, making it the perfect recipe for the novice at-home mixologist looking to celebrate the holiday."
