I have feeling this is going to be Cocktail Week! I hope you don't mind? Anyhow, how fun would it be to treat your (adult) guests to these cool treats...
Yummy. Wanna make your own? Here's how: Stir together 3/4 cup tequila, 1/2 cup Grand Marnier, 1/2 cup fresh lime juice, and a pinch of coarse salt in a large bowl. Cut cantaloupe and watermelon into wedges. Soak in tequila mixture for 15 minutes. Insert sticks (I think I'm on a stick kick today!) and freeze for 1 hour on a baking sheet. Serves 4-6.
But you know me and how I like options! I start to think and off I go...so here is your Tuesday Thought: Using melon balls would make another great option! Just use melon balls instead of wedges - then you can serve them in pretty little cups with a fork/skewer/toothpick or you could just add a couple to a margarita for a pop of color! Add then you could take it a step further...and use a small cookie cutter to add a shape or letter!
P.S. - Here's a little disclaimer - the melon balls/shapes are my adapted version of the original recipe, and I have not made the melon ball/shape version, but if you're only changing the shape then I don't see why it wouldn't work!
