This cocktail is all about its inspiration – the Prickly Pear – and a simple sparkling cocktail – the Swizzle.
We happened upon a huge display of ripe Prickly Pears in our local supermarket and I wasn’t surprised when I found a handful in our basket a few moments later. Lucky for me, I knew there’d be a great cocktail in my future!
The Swizzle is an incredibly easy type of cocktail to make. This one has one additional “make ahead” step with the Prickly Pear Syrup, but since Chris used the “maceration” method, it’s also very simple – it just requires a little time. So chop up your Prickly pears, get them macerating in sugar and then you can enjoy this same cocktail in 3-5 hours when the syrup is done!
