desserts-fruit-fresh-watermelon-wedges-soaked-in-tequila-1-e1543699120856.jpg Desserts, fruit, fresh, watermelon wedges soaked in tequila 3

1 small seedless watermelon, red or yellow, quartered and cut into 1 inch thick wedges

1 cup sugar

¾ cup water

½ cup tequila

¼ cup Triple Sec

2 limes, halved or cut into wedges

flaked sea salt or coarse salt

1. Arrange watermelon in a single layer in two 9 x 13 inch baking dishes. Bring sugar, water, tequilla and Triple Sec to a boil in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Let cool slightly. Pour syrup over watermelon wedges and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes. (The longer the watermelon soaks, the more flavorful it becomes — save any leftover slices!)

2. Remove watermelon from syrup and arrange it on a platter. Squeeze limes over watermelon and sprinkle with salt.
