Oh how I love a good ladies night! Is there anything better? My girlfriends and I get together every Thursday and though we've been mixing it up lately (Circa 1922 last week, the Kitchen two weeks ago), our standard go-to is K38. Not only do they have spectacular Margs (Cantinarita anyone?) & Red Sangria, but hands down: best salsa in town. Maybe the best salsa ever. My absolute favorite is the prickly pear margarita (left) -isn't it stunning? Not only is it delicious but the color is a show stopping pink! I actually went so far as to order prickly pear cactus syrup online a while back so I could make them at home. Here's how:
Combine 2 oz. white tequila, 1 oz. cointreau, juice of 1/2 lime, and 1 oz. prickly pear syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously to combine. Pour over ice (or blend!) and garnish with a lime. This is great served with a sugared or salted rim. Yum!
