Tequila-Soaked Watermelon Wedges

Recipe photo courtesy of Helen Norman

This grown-up fruit dessert borrows flavors from margaritas. Tequila and Triple Sec infuse the watermelon slices, which also get a spray of lime juice and a sprinkling of coarse salt. The longer the watermelon soaks, the more flavorful it becomes -- one more reason to save any leftover slices.

    I have brought this to several summer parties over the last few years. It is always a hit! I choose to keep it sweet and don't use the salt. I recommend using a blanco tequila and not boiling for very long. You just want the sugar to dissolve and not evaporate the alcohol.

    Very good! I add 1/4 cup fresh lime juice. I also take the rind off. Another way to serve is to soak for 1 hour and then put a popsicle stick on and freeze for 1 hour. Fun!

    Actually you should bring only the sugar and water to a boil, just until the sugar dissolves. Let it cool then add in your liquor. This way the heat does not burn the alcohol out. I know I'm a pastry student.
