Preparation -- 10 minutes

It's already in the name, but it's true, prickly pears, also known as cactus figs or cactus fruit, are cactus-like so you have to be careful when you handle them. Otherwise, this fruit will 'prick' you in your hands and that's gonna itch!

Use a glove for peeling the prickly pears. CUT off the edges on both sides and then make one cut lengthwise. Now you can easily peel the cactus fig. Use a blender to create prickly pear juice. 

STRAIN the juice, that's necessary because this fruit contains a lot of hard pits.

POUR the juice into the glasses, about a thick bottom per glass. Then POUR the vodka into the glasses, about the same as the juice. Then finish it off by gently pouring in the sparkling water. That's it, enjoy!
