One of the nature's most ominous creations, the prickly cactus, has been recognized for years as a source of water for those unfortunate enough to become stranded and suffering from dehydration. More recently, this same desert inhabitant has become popular for a lot more than its water content. Just remember the next time you enjoy that warm glow after imbibing in a margarita or an old-fashioned "shooter", it took some delicate harvesting to create the tequila that you so much enjoy.
