The PRICKLY PEAR (Cactus Pear) OLD FASHIONED Cocktail
Living in Tucson, it was almost a prerequisite that I do a Prickly Pear Old Fashioned for Old Fashioned Week. So I did.
I think I know exactly where the rest of my prickly pear syrup is going.
2 Oz. Bourbon
1 Tsp. Prickly Pear Syrup
2 Tsp. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
2 Orange Slices, cut in half
Dash of Bitter Bastards Chipotle Bitters
Garnish: Cactus Candy, Orange Peel, Homemade Bourbon Cherry
Tools: Cocktail Shaker, Hawthorne Strainer
Glass: Old Fashioned
Chill glass in freezer.
Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake until well-chilled then strain into the ice filled chilled glass.
Garnish and serve.
Yes, Bailey was all over this one.

This cocktail paired nicely with my handmade, one-of-a-kind DREAM BIG Paper Necklace.
