I’m not sure what I like better about this cocktail: the taste or the color. Prickly pear is the fruit of the prickly pear cactus. These cacti grow wild throughout the deserts of the southwest. They smell a bit like melon, with a slightly granular texture, mild sweet flavor, and an intense pink color.
Yes, this cocktail can be a pain in the butt to make, but well worth it!
To make prick ly pear juice, peel the fruits, blend them in a highspeed blender, and strain out the solids.
To make pomegranate juice, cut the pomegranates into quarters. Using a wooden spoon, smack the sections on the skin side over a bowl. The seeds should easily pop out. Put the seeds in a blender and pulse just to break up the seeds and release the juice. Strain the seeds through a fine sieve or cheesecloth.
Combine all the ingredients in a pitcher or shaker except the pomegranate seeds, stir well, and pour into tall glasses filled with ice. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds on the top of each cocktail.
