Watermelon & Blackberries Swimming In Tequila

Watermelon & Blackberries Swimming In Tequila

Ok, Summer is ending but watermelon and berries are still in abundance.  I had plenty of both and decided to try something a little different. I sliced and diced into bite size pieces my beautiful  watermelon and threw in these gorgeous blackberries and added a handful of freshly chopped mint.  I squeezed  fresh lime juice over fruit and  added tequila and some chambord.   It was polished off in ten minutes!

Watermelon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
