Tequila Cocktails, Shots, Flights and Bites

FOR THE LOVE OF CACTI

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 oz Arrogante Blanco Tequila
  • 0.5 oz Cointreau Liqueur
  • 0.75 oz Prickly Pear Syrup
  • 0.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • Rim: Kosher Salt and Lime Wedge
  • Garnish: Orange Wheel and a Mint Leaf
  • PREPARATION:

    Spread kosher salt on the plate. Moisten the outside rim of a rocks glass with a lime wedge and dip the glass into a plate of kosher salt to evenly coat the edges. Fill the glass with large chunks of ice and set the glass aside.

    In a Boston shaker, combine Arrogante Blanco tequila, freshly squeezed lime juice, Cointreau and prickly pears syrup. Prickly pear syrup will give the cocktail its bright fuchsia color and sweet taste. Add a handful of ice and shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds.

    Strain the cocktail into the prepared glass. Garnish the cocktail with a fresh mint leaf and a slice of orange. Serve with a straw.

Prickly pear - the fruit of nopales cactus - provides delicious juice that tastes like a cross between all-natural bubblegum and watermelon. It pairs great with another Mexico's native - Arrogante Blanco tequila, while Cointreau and lime add an array of citrus flavors.
