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

 In Drink This Now, Features

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.”
