Clearly we never tire of strawberries. This recipe’s simple and fun to say. We think it must be Italian, since it starts with Rome. After you finish bookmarking, printing or memorizing this, head over to Eat, Play, Love for a sweet contest.
- 2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2-4 tablespoons cointreau or triple sec
- 1 tbsp orange zest
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
Stir berries with sugar and liquor and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. Mix about a third of the berries and the juice with the whipped cream until it’s light and fluffy and you just want to eat the whole bowl. Divide remaining berries between two to four glasses and top with whipped cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve, which ideally would be within an hour or so.
Oooh! I have all of these ingredients! Yay! Totally making this over the weekend. 🙂 Thanks for the shout-out. Got ya down for a few entries. 😉
Oh that looks so good… I really, really want to try this… one day… hopefully soon!
Time to entertain some friends and serve these! Lovely.
Years ago I worked as a pantry chef at a small little upscale place. We served strawberries romanoff and if I remember right we put a small bit of marcapone cheese and a pinch of cinnamon in the cream. It was divine. Thanks for the reminder.
I love strawberries, so I could try new recipes with them all the time! This looks like a great one to try.
Looks Devine, entertaining and simple, i have to give this a whirl.
I am always looking for new ways to serve strawberries – I love the idea of using orange and cointreau!
Love the concept of booze and food. What could be more fun to blog about. Now I’m off to store for some berries! Thx
Strawberries Roamin’ Off? Looks awesome. Here in B’more we only get really good strawberries for about two-three weeks in June @ the farmers markets. I’ve never seen a really ripe strawberry @ a grocery store ever.
We’re quite familiar with the weather in B’more. My wife’s parents live a county over and mine live outside D.C.
Great looking dessert + easy to make = WIN! I read this yesterday and thought of you: http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/tips-techniques/use-strawberries-to-whiten-your-teeth-145453
Ha, our teeth will be glowing this spring. Maybe we’ll use an overripe or underripe berry for this trick.
oh this is delightfully delicious and decadent as well….gotta try this soon. Thanks for the recipe.
This sounds like a fabulous dessert. Simple, elegant, and still refreshing. I recently made some strawberry whipped cream. I’ll have to give this a try!
We’ve invited some new friends over for dinner next week and I’ve been trying to think of something light and fruity to serve for dessert…looks like I’ve found what we’ll be having!
Mmm… With winter down on this end of the planet, these strawberry posts are a complete tease! >_<
Mmm looks decadent 🙂
Sounds like the perfect dessert, very light and fresh.
this looks refreshing and decadent at the same time. Will definitely try this soon!
Thanks for stopping by Freezer Full — I’ll have to try this recipe out next! 🙂
Mmm/, sounds delicious! It also sounds a bit like Eton Mess, which, if you haven’t heard of it, is chantilly cream mixed with summer fruits and crumbly bits of meringue. YUM!
I had but only because it was on Foodpress! Sounds wonderful.
This is a beautiful dessert and perfect for summer. Nice photo too!
