Cactus Colada Recipe
We are a couple of days away from Cinco De Mayo and I have been playing in the kitchen just for you! I must say it was so hard to make this Cactus Colada Recipe. 🙂
It was so rough taste testing this amazing drink!
But I did it just for you!
I found this recipe in the 200 Easy Mexican Recipes: Authentic Recipes From Burritos to Enchiladas. This cookbook is filled with fantastic recipes including this seriously yummy Margarita Pie!
