Prickly Pear Shrub
Our Prickly Pear Shrub is a sight for sore eyes, and packs a serious flavor punch that’s hard to find and worthy of a try. We proudly sourced the best prickly pears we could find from Windrose Farm and Centennial House on the Central Coast of California. The cactus plants at both of these farms are impressive in size, and what’s even more impressive is the sheer volume of bright pink, purple and red colored fruit they produce. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of prickly pears (nicknamed tunas) come from one cactus plant at the height of the season.
Windrose Farm and Centennial House are growing what we believe to be the best tasting, sweetest smelling Prickly Pears in California. Each prickly pear is harvested one at a time, and the fruit flesh inside is brightly colored, seriously sweet tasting and an ideal ingredient for our seasonal Prickly Pear Shrubs.
HOW TO USE: Add to cocktails, use in salsas, great for marinading

More about the Maker: Our combined commitments to making and selling in small batches, sourcing fruit directly from our small farm partners and never adding sugar define us. We are exceedingly proud to make beverages that celebrate the bounty, abundance and bright flavors of every season in Southern California.
We source produce from small-scale, community-based, regionally-rooted farmers. Many of the farms we work with are certified-organic, non-profits committed to cultivating community around food and making positive changes to our regional food systems.
We are equally proud to source seasonal fruit from the properties and side yards of small, local producers who share our same values and practice organic farming. Together, our small farm partners manage and care for perennial fruit trees and orchards, honor the earth and celebrate the landscape that sustains all of us.
