Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 2 cups strawberries, hulled, halved or quartered
- 1 cup fresh peach, diced
- 1 cup fresh mango, diced
- ¼ cup fresh blueberries
- 2 tbsp. sugar or to taste (depends on ripeness and sweetness of fruit)
- 1 tsp. lime zest
- 2 tbsp. lime juice
- 2 tbsp. tequila
- 1 ½ tbsp. cointreau or triple sec (orange flavored liqueur)
- salt & sugar to rim your glasses (use your own taste buds to determine the amount of each)
1Place your fruit and berries, sugar, lime zest, lime juice, tequila and liqueur in a large bowl; toss gently to combine. Let stand for 20 minutes for the flavors develop and sugar to dissolve. Stir again and keep covered in refrigerator until serving time.
2Serve in margarita glasses - rub the rims with additional lime juice and dip in a salt-sugar mixture for that appealing salty sweet taste, then equally spoon the fruit mixture into the glasses.
3NOTE: For a nonalcoholic or kid-friendly version, substitute fresh orange juice for the tequila and Triple Sec.
