Featuring Hudson Valley vodka and fruity touches, this prickly pear cocktail recipe from Cooper’s Daughter in Claverack is just the thing for warmer weather.

The fruit used for infusing the Buddha’s Hand vodka and the prickly pear in the syrup are grown in hot climates, making them perfect summer ingredients. The combination of citrus and sweet notes is a great thirst quencher.
