Margarita Fruit Dip

This is a delicious, sweetened citrus-tequila fruit dip. With a little bit of tequila in this one, it’s best not to serve this at a party with kids (or place it well out of reach of the kiddos). Leave the tequila out if you’d just like the flavors but no alcohol.

Yield: 2 1/2 cups

Prep Time: 15 min + chill time

Margarita Fruit Dip


2 cups sour cream (light is just fine)
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons tequila
1 Tablespoon freshly grated lime peel
1 Tablespoon freshly grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 Tablespoons ground roasted almonds


1. In medium bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk well until blended.

2. Cover and chill several hours.

3. When ready to serve, garnish with small lime slices or zest.

4. Serve with fresh fruit.


*This is great to prepare the evening before your event and let it chill overnight.
*Using a better tequila will give this dip a better flavor.
