Prickly Pear Cocktail

Prickly Pear Cocktail

Dear Monday,

Hey. Could I ask you a favor? Could you please be gentle? Is that too much to ask? Please let this day be full of wins and not battles.  If you do not pull through for me today, I DO have this bourbon & pear cocktail sweetened with honey to fall back on. Perhaps the effervescence of the ginger ale might life my spirits if you do not pull through?

Since you almost always disappoint, I might just succumb to popcorn for dinner. Wait…that doesn’t sound half bad. Anyways…carry on Monday, carry on…


  • 1 pear, peeled & chopped, plus slices for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 3 oz. bourbon
  • ice cubes
  • 6 oz. ginger ale, chilled
