When it starts getting hot outside, it helps to cool off with a refreshing snack. If you're looking for something to tide you over on those balmy summer afternoons, look no further than this delicious mix of frozen mangoes, peaches, berries, and, if you're in the mood for partying, a splash or two of tequila. This recipe, dreamed up by chef Einat Admony, who runs Israeli-Spanish tapas restaurant Combina in N.Y.C., not only looks gorgeous, it's brimming with essential vitamins and nutrients (and, okay, yes, a little booze too). Read on for the full breakdown.
