Mommy Dearest…a.k.a Joan Crawford


  • 2 oz. Crop Myer’s Lemon Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. St. Elder
  • 1 oz. Perfect Puree Prickly Pear
  • 1/4 oz. Lemon Juice


  1. In a shaker combine all ingredients over ice and shake.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and top with slice of fresh fruit. I used a slice of dried apple, in honor of Joan Crawford’s children – the apples of her eyes. 😉
  3. Sit back and enjoy your day!
