Tequila Drunken Peaches and ice-cream /FROM MEXICO WITH LOVE/
I learn about this recipe from KELLY and REGIS one morning where Marcela Valladolid was preparing this recipe. I realized immediately that is a wonderful recipe and I prepare it that night, having a lot of peaches from Quincy Farmer's Market.
It is an exceptional good recipe, my husband was delighted. He never, ever use anything for his
“vanilla only ice cream" but once he try it he was asking every-time for his vanilla ice cream.
The peaches are perfectly soft grilled, with a strong tequila/honey test and when you add the syrup for the ice cream is divine!!!
TRY FOR YOURSELF....
2 cups pineapple juice
1 cup honey
1/4 cup tequila
1 stick butter, melted
3 peaches, pitted and halved
1 pint frozen plain yogurt
Combine the pineapple juice and honey in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
Add the tequila, turn off the heat and set aside.
Meanwhile, prepare a barbecue or grill pan to medium-high.
Spread the butter over each peach half and grill, flat-sides down, until warmed through, about 4 minutes
Add the grilled peaches to the tequila syrup and let stand 20 minutes before serving.
Serve the peaches with frozen yogurt and drizzle with tequila syrup.
Cook's Note: The peaches can stand in the syrup, covered, up to 24 hours at refrigerator.
