The Coastal Prickly Pear Cactus is stunning with its vibrant pink and purple hues that contrast against the sandy beaches of California. This cactus plant is native to the coastal regions of the state, and its beauty is matched only by its usefulness. Originally brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers, the Coastal Prickly Pear has since become a staple of the California landscape. Its unique qualities make it an important part of the ecosystem, as it provides both food and shelter for a variety of animals and insects. In addition to its ecological importance, the fruit of the plant is edible and often used to make jellies and syrups. As much as I love the prickly pear for its beauty, my love for the plant grew after having my first prickly pear margarita, which is refreshing and delicious. Made from the cactus fruit, lime, agave, and tequila, this drink is a popular favorite among beachgoers and cocktail enthusiasts alike. Its sweet and tangy flavor perfectly complements the salty sea air and warm sun of a California beach day. Our PRICKLY PEAR scent is floral, slightly sweet, with an earthy undertone, much like the cocktail, and one we know you’ll love.



  • Bucket or Highball glass
  • Cocktail Shaker


In cocktail shaker, add ice and the following ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 ounces of Tequila (Don Julio Silver preferred)
  • 3/4 ounce of Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce  ounce of agave nectar
  • 1 ounce water
  • 1 ounce of Prickly Pear Syrup

Shake vigorously. Then pour into a glass with fresh ice, rimmed with course sea salt, and garnish with a lime wheel.


Prickly Pear Syrup is easy. No skinning or burning required. 

Step 1: To get the useable parts, scoop out the flesh of the prickly pear.

Step 2: Grab a strainer and run the liquid and prickly pear through it. Use a spoon to press it into the strainer to get all of the juice out. (You can do this step before or after cooking the pear.)

Step 3: Put the flesh into a pot and simmer with ¼ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (or citric acid) Simmer the syrup for about 30 minutes on really low heat until it thickens. If you didn't put it through the strainer to remove the seeds, do this now (use cheesecloth).

Step 4: Allow the liquid to cool, and you have your syrup!
