  • ¾ oz/22ml lime juice

  • ¼ oz/7ml mezcal
  • 8 oz/240ml soda water


  • Muddle prickly pear flesh with tequila and ginger liqueur. Shake with ice.
  • Strain into pitcher and add remaining ingredients except for soda water. Stir to combine.
  • Add several large ice cubes (they won’t melt as fasto the pitcher and top with soda water.


*You can of course use a purchased version. I suggest one that is less sweet and has a bit more fresh ginger bite.
The cocktail can be prebatched without the soda water for up to two days before serving. Store in an air tight jar in the fridge if doing so.
