Tequila-Soaked Fruit


Juicy, tropical fruit is a refreshing finale to a meal high on flavor. Cut the fruit in the morning and refrigerate, then sprinkle on tequila an hour before eating. Skewer right before serving.

  • Yield: Makes 18 skewers

    Are there any non-alcoholic substitutions to soak this in?

    This is crazy! Watermelon is perfect just as it is! To soak it in Tequila is insane!
