Tequila-Almond Fruit Dunk
This dunk can also be thinned with milk and served as a dressing over fruit.
2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup ground toasted almonds
3 tablespoons tequila, preferably gold
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar, or more, to taste
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon minced orange zest
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced lime zest
Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cover the mixture and chill it, preferably overnight to blend flavors.
Serve the dunk with fruit such as sliced papaya, seedless grapes, banana slices (dipped in lemon juice), pear slices (dipped in lemon juice), strawberries, pitted cherries, or chunked melon, piled high, for a cooling summer treat.
