Drink This Now: Prickly Pear Margarita At Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa

Summer may have come and gone, but that does not mean that our cravings for Margaritas has diminished.  So we head to Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa for their popular Prickly Pear Margarita to get our fix.

Created by Tyler Gallup, Food & Beverage Manager, he says of the drink, “Gateway is located in a beautiful high desert surrounded by the south western red rock canyons that makes guests feel that they are in the Wild West. Cactus is a natural part of the surrounding landscape and the bulb of the prickly pear cactus can be harvested and made into a semi sweet puree that mimics a light watermelon or bubblegum flavor. This combined with the tartness from the lime makes a well-balanced eye-appealing hot pink margarita.”
