How do you make Margarita Fruit Dip?

It starts with sour cream.  You can use full fat or reduced fat- it won’t make a difference in the flavor.  Add in a little sugar, tequila, lime and orange zest and ground almonds.  Mix in a sprinkle of cinnamon, and you’ve got a 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.
