Prickly Pear EquinOx

80 Proof, 40% ABV

Witness the sentinels of spring: the crocus blooming, newborn calves, the returning flocks of winged visitors. Spring is a time for rebirth, growth and revival. A time for refreshing drinks on the patio and ice cold libations heralding their release from winter hibernation. Prickly Pear EquineOx honours the role horses and oxen play in the annual renewal of the earth, readying Eau Claire’s fields for the annual spring planting. This liqueur is a sweet, barley-based alternative to gin or vodka that can be served on ice or as a complement to your favourite cocktail. Pair it with longer evenings and warm weather.
