Fruit or Berries Macerated with Liqueur

Make in any amount

Mixed Fruit or Berries Recipe Photo

This is an easy and light dessert for any occasion at any time of the year, whether for a weeknight dinner or entertaining.

Use whatever fruits or berries are available. Splash with a liqueur such as orange liqueur or limoncello, my two favorites. You can even use liquor such as cognac, brandy, or white rum, or a flavorful sweet wine such as port. Mix well, cover and set in the refrigerator for at least two hours and taste for adjustments. Serve in dessert bowls or, for a more elegant presentation, place in your favorite stemmed glasses. For an extra touch, pour some champagne over the fruit and watch it bubble. If desired, garnish with a sprig of mint.

For a kid-friendly version, macerate the fruit with a little orange juice. Before serving, add the liqueur to the adult desserts.
