Mouthwatering in-season fruits are one of the most delicious parts of summer -- especially when you combine them with the ingredients for your favorite cocktail. Start with this recipe for margarita watermelon from Delish for a refreshing snack (with a little bit of a buzz). The technique is simple: Just soak slices of watermelon in a mixture of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice and, if you prefer, garnish with salt and lime zest before eating.

The combination of cool, juicy fruit and margarita flavor is pretty inspired, and the serving possibilities are nearly endless: Soak a batch for a grownups-only neighborhood cookout, bring some slices to the poolside portion of your next bachelorette party, or sneak a few slices into your cooler to share with your over-21 cousins during your next family beach day.

Can't get enough "boozy fruit"? Try Prosecco grapes, rose strawberries, pina colada fruit kebabs, spiked fruit cups, or bourbon-poached peaches.
