directions

  • Use a sharp knife to cut a slice off the top and bottom of each of the oranges, then remove the peel and pith, careful to retain the shape of the oranges.
  • Hold oranges on their side and cut horizontally into slices.
  • Place oranges in a nonmetallic bowl. Cut the lime in half and squeeze over the oranges. Sprinkle with the tequila and liqueur then sprinkle over the brown sugar to taste (two tablespoons or so should be plenty).
  • Cover and chill till ready to serve, then transfer to a serving dish, mix gently with the berries and decorate with lime zest. Enjoy!

  1. Light refreshing and tangy, this was a perfect light finish for a lazy supper. I used very little sugar as the fruit was quite sweet. Next time, and there will be one, I might play with the alcohol ratios to use a little more orange liquor (a favorite). Wasn't sure how to best serve the oranges when I remembered that I had an abundance of berries which were perfect here.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I grew up in rural east Texas and Louisiana before being transplanted to the beautiful state of Kentucky at the age of 17....so for the most part, my 'hard drive' is programmed for rich, southern style food. Recipes for things like mashed potatoes, cream gravy, pot roast, chicken fried steak and chili are burned in to my DNA!! ?I will never deny my love for rich, southern foods and I'm not a fan of stripping away all the fat and flavor in order to lighten up my favorite southern staples, however (fortunately) my culinary horizons expand beyond my roots and I love finding new foods and new ways of cooking that are just as delicious and in many cases much healthier. ?I do receive an incredible amount of joy from feeding others....a trait I definately attribute to my southern roots.
