Limoncello Prickly Pear Martini

Is this not a fun beautiful cocktail for spring/summer, perhaps Mothers Days. While on a recent trip visiting friends in Prescott AZ, my friend Leanna gifted me a bottle of Prickly Pear Syrup. What to do with prickly pear syrup….. develop a cocktail with limoncello of course. The link for the syrup is below on Amazon, remember Bella Bistro is an Amazon Affiliate member. What does that mean? It means Bella will receive a small percentage of your purchase but not cost you anything more. Or if you happen to be shopping in Prescott you can pick a bottle up.

  • 1 shot limoncello
  • 1 shot vodka
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 3/4 shot prickly pear syrup
  • prosecco or club soda
  • garnish any of the following : slice of lemon, lime, fresh lavendar, fresh rosemary

My shot glass is 2 ounces. In a martini shaker with ice add all your ingredients excluding prosecco or club soda. Shake well until combined and chilled. You can rim your martini glass in sugar by rubbing a wedge of lemon around the rim and dipping in sugar sprinkled out on a small salad plate. Pour the martini in your prepared glass, top with prosecco or club soda and garnish.
