Texas Prickly Pear Cactus Spirits
The nose will be similar to a tequila; the Prickly Pear Cactus is a cousin of the Agave. On your pallet it will have earthy, lemon grass, and organic notes with a taste almost halfway between a tequila and a vodka. It will have the same cleanness of a vodka but with more flavor. At 102 proof it is very smooth compared to most 80 proof spirits and has a very clean smooth finish, with NO HARSH ALCOHOL AFTERTASTE For those that like a stronger drink, enjoy it over some ice or with a squeeze of lime. For those that like mixed drinks it blends perfectly into many cocktails. With the earthy flavors of the cactus it blends great with anything citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange, etc) and herbs (mints, basil, rosemary, etc.). By far our most popular cocktail in our tasting room is our "Moonshine" Cactus Mule. Check out our Mixed Drink and Drink Recipes tabs above to see how to make some great cocktails!.
