I know it sounds ridiculous but I’m already SO SICK of winter! But… we will be heading to Arizona in one week! And to get in a warmer state of mind we are making this Prickly Pear Prosecco Spritzer!
We have always been curious when we see prickly pear cactus fruit and this was the perfect opportunity to give this unique fruit a try… and it tastes great but I wasn’t a huge fan of all the seeds. Steve didn’t mind them as much though so you might feel the same.
However, we decided it might be easier for a drink to use a syrup that is very popular in Arizona and it incorporates the delicious flavor and a little sweetness- ideal for a Spritzer. But don’t worry, If you don’t happen to live in the southwest or won’t be traveling there soon, you can also order it on Amazon.
Just look at the beautiful color of this Prickly Pear Prosecco Spritzer! Even looking at this beautiful pink drink seems to put me in a warmer state of mind. And then you take a sip…
It’s bright, cheery, and sweet- the perfect kind of drink to celebrate the holiday season!
We decided to go light on the syrup but you can always add more if you like your drinks a little sweeter. Simply add the syrup, triple sec, lemon juice and Prosecco. And DONE!
If you are stuck in a cold climate like we are, give this Prickly Pear Prosecco Spritzer a go. You may be wearing a sweater when you sip, but in your mind, you will hopefully be amongst the saguaros! Happy sipping!
If you want to buy the syrup, you can here!
- ¼ oz Prickly Pear Syrup
- ¼ oz Triple Sec
- 1 Splash Lemon Juice
- In a champagne flute, add the syrup, triple sec and lemon juice.
- Next slowly fill the rest of the glass with prosecco.
