Citrus Infused Strawberries
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cooking Time: 20 minutes Yields: 4 people
1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier, or other orange liqueur
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1. Combine strawberries, sugar, Grand Marnier (or other orange liqueur) and lemon juice in a medium bowl.
2. Let stand, stirring once or twice, until the strawberries release their juice, about 10 minutes.
3. Spoon into 4 small bowls for serving.
Notes: A sopisticated liqueur elevates the humble strawberry to new heights. Add a dollop of slightly sweetened whipped cream or even yogurt for a tangy twist.
