CACTUS PEAR MEZCAL MULE

What you need

  • 2 ounces mezcal
  • 1/2 jalapeño
  • 6 ounces ginger beer
  • 1 ounce cactus pear puree
  • 1 lime
  • salt

What to do

  • Rim your glass with lime and salt, set aside.
  • Gut the cactus pears and place into a blender or bullet. Mix until pureed. You might need to add water to break it up.
  • In a shaker, muddle the lime juice and jalapeño.
  • Add the mezcal, a couple ice cubes, and the prickly pear puree to the shaker & shake well.
  • Pour the drink into your glass and add the ginger beer.
  •  Garnish the drink with a slice of jalapeño.
  • Optional: strain the liquid into your glass to avoid seeds and sedatives from the pears if desired. I like mine a little chunky.
  • Cheers!
