Phillip’s Prickly Pear Margarita

Image

Phillip, our manager and food and beverage director here at the Gage Hotel, shared with us his most popular drink recipe that keeps visitors raving and craving, even weeks after their stay. Needless to say, this West Texan knows a thing or two about making an amazing and authentic margarita—and we are lucky enough to have him share his secret with us. Happy Friday y’all!

The 5 simple ingredients are as follows:

1.5 ounces  *Pura Vida Silver tequila

2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice

3/4 ounces of Cointreau

Splash of simple syrup

1/2 ounces of prickly pear juice (1/2prickly pear juice, and 1/2 prickly pear purée mix)

After combining the above, add the mixture to a shaker with ice, and shake vigorously. Salt the rim of the glass (or not—whichever you prefer!), and add ice. Then, strain the margarita into your glass and garnish with lime wedge or fruit of your choice.

Voila! You have your self a delicious homemade Prickly Pear Margarita, courtesy of the Gage Hotel. Enjoy!

  1. We were there April 2014 and LOVED the prickly pear margarita! Rode my motorcycle through the entire state of Texas knowing that when I arrived at your hotel I was going right to the bar for this drink! The bartender gave me an overview of the recipe and I’m so glad to have the complete recipe! THANKS for posting… 🙂 I even wrote about your margarita in my blog!
