Some people just can’t handle it


I love to end the week with a Margarita. It’s like a mental vacation to Cabo. I have always believed that casual dress Fridays should really be ‘casual drinking Fridays’. But you know there is always that one idiot who can’t handle it. The same guy in your office who believes that casual dress Friday is the perfect time for him to wear his stupid Tommy Bahama Hawaiian shirt is the same moron who would turn my dream of casual drinking Fridays into morning bloody mary’s at the water cooler and end up puking all over the conference room. H.S.G. (Hawaiian shirt guy) always ruins it for it everybody. For those of you who did not wear a hawaiian shirt to work today I give you the cactus pear margarita!

What you’ll need

2 oz Patron Silver Tequila
1/2 oz Cointreau
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/4 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz fresh cactus pear juice or puree
3/4 oz Pear Syrup


Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Rim a martini glass with chipotle salt. Strain the mixture into the Martini Glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
