Prickly Pear Punch

Prickly Pear Punch


Serves 4 (serving size: about 1/2 cup)

We like the clean flavor and mixability of silver tequila, though a golden añejo or reposado would add complexity. Cava or crémant will work just as well as dry prosecco here. If you use a different cactus water than True Nopal, check its sugar content—some brands are sweeter and won’t need as much added sugar for flavor balance.


  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 (1-in.) lemon rind strip
  • 1 cup cactus water (see below)
  • 1/2 cup silver tequila
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup prosecco or other dry sparkling wine

How to Make It

Step 1

Muddle together sugar and lemon rind in a large glass. Stir in cactus water, tequila, and honey. Add ice cubes; cover, and shake well. Strain tequila mixture evenly into 4 glasses. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon prosecco.

Step 2

True Nopal Cactus Water: Unlike other brands, True Nopal has no added sugar, so you can taste the prickly pear--it's like mild grape juice, pleasant on its own, and a great mixer that won't step on other flavors. It has half the calories and sugar of many coconut waters. Available at grocery stores nationwide.
