It’s made with prickly pear juice, which comes from a cactus common in the Southwest. Supposedly, prickly pear juice is great for preventing hangovers. Not sure if that’s true, but it’s worth a shot!


  • 2 oz tequila
  • ¾ oz fresh lime juice
  • ½ oz prickly pear juice
  • ½ oz Cointreau
  • Kosher salt
  • Ice
  • Lime slice for garnish


Shake liquid ingredients with ice in a martini shaker. Strain out ice before serving. Serve in margarita glasses rimmed with kosher salt and garnish with a lime slice.
