While reading about all the different flavors of margaritas, one particular margarita--the Prickly Pear Margarita, a favorite in New Mexico--received so many glowing comments. So I had to give it a try. And yes, it's every bit as delicious as everyone said it would be. I tried a few recipes that were all pretty similar, but this one stood out as our favorite because all the ingredients were in the perfect amounts to produce a great margarita. I hope you enjoy it, too.
