Prickly Pear Margarita full of healthy benifits and antioxidants.

Hey Loves, Happy Hump Day! Now you know you’ve got to love it when I find a way to make drinking tequila healthy. I’m just saying if you’re going to have a margarita, you may as well through a little extra benefit in it…right?

So here’s the short scope on the creation. Brad is all about southwestern food and the flavors of the desert; so he comes home the other day with these prickly pears. He swears it’s going to make an amazing margarita. I had to admit the color was gorgeous, but they looked a little like a pink fuzzy balls on the inside and to me that didn’t really sound like something I was all thrilled about putting in my mouth…if you can feel me? Anyways, you all know me and I’m a good sport and can pretty much be bought with anything that contains tequila. So, I was in, but not before I looked up prickly pear. I was surprised to see that some people are considering this a superfood, but not the Mayo Clinic my go to health source. Here is my favorite benefit from eating a prickly pear. They may actually reduce the unpleasant side affects of a hangover. What better way to cure your hangover, then to ingest the remedy as you poor alcohol into your body?

Okay enough of my rambling the recipe is below and it turns out fuzzy balls taste great! Smooches
