How about a Tequila Lime Tart?     I got recipe from Guy's Big Bite last summer.


For the Crust:

Ingredients:
10 ounces of vanilla wafers
1/3 cup pine nuts (I found these at Trader Joe's or Sprouts)
1/2 cup butter melted

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Add wafers and pine nuts to food processor, pulse until well ground up. Pour into a bowl and add melted butter. Mix by hand and with a wooden spoon press into a 10 inch tart pan.(reserve 4 tablespoons of crumbs to sprinkle on top when done baking.)

For the filling:

Ingredients:

2 eggs whites
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup tequila  (I use good tequila usually Patron)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
4 egg yokes
1(14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Directions:

In mixing bowl add egg whites and sugar, beat until there are soft peaks.

In another mixing bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Fold the egg whites. Pour into tart shell and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Let cool before cutting and serve with fresh whipped cream.


Hope you enjoy.

Wow. I'm not much of a dessert guy (never have room left), but I like to make homemade ice cream.  That way, you can add whatever ingredients you want.  I've got some leftover pulled pork...hmmm....

Crap I forgot a little hint. Put in a few drops of green food coloring. The egg white leave it pretty white for a lime taste.

  This tart recipe would be greener and tarter w/  a teaspoon of lime zest :) - don't put zest into the filling ,until it's done, and then just a little at a time to suit your taste buds.

Not to be a smart a$$, but I don't think there is any such thing as a "cool summer desert." 

But a cool summer dessert in the hot summer desert sounds mighty nice!  :D

Take two limes, a dozen eggs, a half pound of goat cheese, three tablespoons of mayo and a twelve pack of your favorite beer. Open one can of beer, put all that other stuff back in the fridge, drink the can of beer, then repeat for the remaining eleven cans. It's quite refreshing and takes little effort.

I would almost have to say thats a good recipe, but can the beer be replaced with say tea or soda?
