If you prefer a nonalcoholic dessert, use 2 tablespoons orange juice in place of the tequila and orange liqueur.
This dessert provides nutrition and great taste, thanks to 2/3 cup strawberries per parfait. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. They also contain antioxidants that can help maintain healthy cells.
Rub the outside rims of your glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of sugar. Top with an extra dollop of whipped cream sprinkled with grated lime peel.
