My dinner parties are not spent in the kitchen unless my guests are there with me. Here's a great dessert that I can mostly make ahead of time, with the final prep done by the guests themselves.
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup sugar
12 small or 6 large limes (2/3 cup lime juice)
1/3 cup tequila
4 tbs triple sec
1/8 tsp saltBowl dip
2 small or 1 large lime (3 tbs juice)
1/4 cup kosher salt
1 lime for garnish
Yield: 6 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes plus 4 hours of freezing
1. Over high heat, add water to a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Remove from heat.
