Cool Off This Summer With These Tequila Lime Watermelon Sorbet Bars
Recipe and photos by Launie Kettler
When it comes to the warmth of summer, we like to close our eyes and think of fruit. Of course, it’s even better when we’re lying in a hammock.
But, we digress.
And what fruit pops into the front of our minds as the superstar of the summer? Watermelon.
Maybe it’s because we remember running under a sprinkler on the lawn in pure joy on days that were languid and warm, knowing we’d be getting some watermelon before the afternoon was over.
Or, maybe it was just the “ptooey,” of spitting the seeds out once we did get that watermelon.
For this summer treat, we decided to take our watermelon love to new heights by adding a little bit of tequila to this delicious sorbet-based frozen dessert, because, you know, we’re adults now!
Then, we topped it with a creamy lime topping for some extra deliciousness. And – just to gild the lily – we decided to top the whole beautiful thing with fresh strawberries and blueberries. Why? Well, because it’s summer, and fruit is good.
Hello, July! It’s nice to see you!
