This Bytes: Rum Soaked Fruit Kebobs Recipe




Society tells us that men should be grilling and ladies should be sitting by the pool with a mojito, right? We're pretty sure that's how it goes. Now, as much as we agree with the mojito part, we're dubious about the whole 'only men can only grill' thing.

We are proof that ladies can grill too WHILE drinking a mojito (we're ladies of many talents). By no means are we saying that men can't make these delicious kebobs–but ladies, if you're having your girls over for a pool party, bust out your grilling tools and make these delicious kabobs!

They are easy, delicious, healthy and the best part.... soaked in rum! We thought you might like that part! We like to sneak alcohol in all things we do. You're welcome! But who doesn't like fruit, right? And if you don't like GRILLED fruit then you need your taste buds checked. Grilling is summer's pastime so we are right on trend.

Make these happen you guys, and gals. Your taste buds are screaming for them!


Grilled Tropical Fruit Soaked in Rum:

1 cup packed brown sugar

3 tbsp butter

1 1/2 tsp ginger root, finely chopped

4 oz rum

1 pineapple cut into chunks

2 mangos cut into large chunks

2 large bananas cut into large pieces

Preheat grill to medium high heat. Combine sugar, butter, ginger and rum in a saucepan. Heat over low heat until well combined–about 3 minutes. Turn off heat and let fruit soak in the rum sugar mixture for about 20 minutes. Thread fruit onto skewers and place kabobs on the grill. Allow grill marks to show, takes about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn kabobs and repeat on other side. Serve hot, room temp or chilled.

*let skewers soak in water before grilling for at least 30 minutes to prevent charring
