tipsy strawberries

Tipsy Strawberries

Marinated in crème de cassis, a black currant liqueur, these berries have a stronger fruit flavor with just a touch of tartness.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds strawberries, quartered 
  • ½ cup crème de cassis 
  • ¾ cup C&H® Golden Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped

Instructions

Serves 4.

Place strawberries in a large bowl, add crème de cassis and mix. Pour in sugar and stir to incorporate all the ingredients. 

Let the mixture rest for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour before serving. Garnish with chopped mint.

Chef's Tip: For a more elegant presentation, serve strawberries in a martini glass and top each serving with a couple of fresh mint leaves. 

For a special kick of flavor, marinate the strawberries with a tablespoon of chopped mint. Do not use more or the mint will take over.
