Okay, so these don't make the prettiest picture, but don't be fooled; they are tasty!  This is a recipe I created all by myself.  I've been on a grilling kick lately and decided to try grilling fruit.  It's fun!  Here's what I came up with.

Tequila Glazed Grilled Peaches

¼ cup honey
1 tbsp tequila
4 peaches
Whipped cream

Combine honey and tequila and heat over medium-high heat until just boiling.  Remove from heat.  Let stand a few minutes.  Glaze will thicken as it cools.

Grill peaches over medium-high heat until grill marks form and peaches start to soften.

Glazed can be brushed over peaches or drizzled over them.  Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Makes 4 servings.

My husband and I made this recipe together after the kids went to bed one night.  He grilled the peaches while I made the glaze.  He had a little trouble with the peaches sticking, so I suggest oiling the grate before laying the peaches down.

We didn't skin our peaches, but I think I might do that next time.  It was a little bit bitter.

The cinnamon is certainly not necessary; it's more for looks.  But it adds a nice touch.

I love tequila and the flavor really comes through in this dish.  The glaze is not really cooked long enough for the alcohol to be removed, so I would consider this an adult only dessert.

This dish makes for a sweet ending to a fun summer day.
