Prickly pear syrup puts a bright pink twist on a classic mojito. This drink is perfect for bridal showers, girls night, or sipping drinks by the pool.

What is Prickly Pear?

Prickly Pear is a fruit that grows on top of the cactus paddle. The flesh is a bright pink color and has similar notes to a strawberry.

While the fruit itself can be intimidating to peel, luckily there’s an easier way to enjoy it in a cocktail form. I’m using the Prickly Pear Sour mixer from Iconic Cocktail.

How to Make a Prickly Pear Mojito

Start by muddling some fresh mint in a glass to release its aroma. Using fresh herbs adds a nice floral note to cocktails.

Try my recipe for Thai Basil and Cucumber cocktail.
