Why wait until summer to experience the flavours of Mexico? Here’s a little recipe, courtesy of our good friends at Njoy, that’s sure to ‘prick’ up your senses!

To prepare:

Mix:

1 part tequila
1 part triple sec
3 parts Njoy Cactus with Apple and Lime juice
1 squeeze of lemon

Serve with crushed ice.

New Njoy Cactus with Apple and Lime (RRP $2.99 - $3.49) is now available from selected supermarkets nationwide. To win a triple pack of Njoy Cactus with Apple and Lime, visit our competitions section and enter today!

The prickly pear cactus can be grown indoors or in a rock garden. Make sure to check with your local garden centre as some species do not fare well in frosty conditions. As a native of the desert, the prickly pear prefers full sun or partial shade, a sandy soil, and just a little water when dry. For more information regarding the prickly pear, be sure to visit our Plant of the Week section next week.  

Please try this recipe and send us your feedback, or your recipes to share with our readers, by emailing us at info@garden-nz.co.nz

Thanks and… Njoy!
