You’ve spent many cold nights sipping traditional apple cider, but have you ever tried hot prickly pear cider? Tomorrow’s fundraiser for Desert Harvesters is the perfect time to try La Cocina’s newest libation: prickly pear cider, a Sonoran Desert spin on everybody’s favorite cold weather drink! Pairing perfectly with the night’s theme of native plants are three delicious specials: Tepary Bean Hummus with Mesquite Crackers, Prickly Pear Jam, and Nopalito Calabacitas.
Desert Harvesters is a local organization that works to promote and celebrate indigenous food-bearing perennial plants and limit water overuse. They work to educate the community on how to plant, care for, and harvest these plants and bring them to our tables. 10% of La Cocina’s profits from this event will be donated to Desert Harvesters. What better way to support this wonderful organization than by eating and drinking local food?
