Summer Berry Dessert

This is my favourite go-to Summer dessert because it’s so simple and delicious. It’s barely a recipe at all.

Basically mix up a bunch of summer berries in a glass or ceramic bowl (about 1 punnet per person) with Cointreau and if the berries aren’t that sweet, then add in some sugar to taste. If the strawberries are large, halve or quarter them. Cover with cling film and put into the fridge, stirring occasionally. The longer the berries macerate in the Cointreau, the better.

You can also do this with just strawberries (a bastardized version of Strawberries Romanoff) and I’ve been known to whip this up and eat it straight away and it’s still very yummy. Serve with whipped cream, clotted cream or if you’re being lazy, like I often am, just pour the cream over the berries.

If you are making this for one, I just fill up a bowl with the berries and pour over the Cointreau, mix them up then pour cream over the top.
