If you thought my Toomer’s Lemonade recipe was good, wait until you try this Prickly Pear Lemonade recipe! WOW! (*insert heart eyes emoji*)
This recipe takes your average lemonade to the next level. It combines the perfect amount of sour with sweet.
I believe I said this in my Toomer’s Lemonade recipe, but I like my lemonade on the sour side. I believe that is why I took such a liking to Toomer’s. Boy was it sour! If you prefer sweeter lemonade, start by adding ½ C of sugar and go from there.
Although we are almost into fall, it is still hotter than Satan’s booty here in Texas, and this lemonade is just what you need to quench your thirst! Enjoy!
