  • About

Grandma had several nopales (cactus paddles) growing along the fence in her backyard in El Paso. Together we would pick the tunas (prickly pears) off the cactus, peel, and eat the sweet fruit. As a tribute to my Grandma—who loved her tunas and color de rosa (the color pink)—I dedicate this beautiful pink margarita in her honor.
