Tutti Frutti

Lately these days our house is filled with fruit. I mean filled. Not just our fridge, because that is always well stocked with apples, orange, and more berries than you can shake a stick at. And I'm not talking about dried fruit either, because we have plenty of pineapple, apricots, cranberries, and cherries in our pantry too. I mean our counters our over flowing with summer produce. Cherries, nectarines, peaches, plums, lemons, and limes; we have fruit everywhere. It really is fantastic.

With all this fresh fruit, it's hard to think about mixing chunks of it with batter and baking it into some kind of baked good. Why mess with something so perfect. So instead, since it's Friday, I think it's a perfect occasion for a pretty drink that is high in both alcohol and vitamin C.

Frozen Nectarine Margarita 
Serves 3-4
  • 3 nectarines peeled and sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup limoncello
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 3 cups ice

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Enjoy.
