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.
