Drunken Berries

Recipe by  

"Beautiful summer dessert using fresh berries and a splash of pear liqueur. Enjoy a la carte or a la mode. Exceptionally lovely on the Fourth of July. Serve berries by themselves or over vanilla gelato, with a small amount of excess liquid - but should not be a berry soup."

Directions

  1. Combine sugar with water in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes; remove from heat and let stand 5 more minutes.
  2. Stir pear liqueur into the syrup and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Gently combine strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries in a large bowl and pour syrup over the berries to coat. Allow berries to stand for about 3 hours to absorb flavors. Mixture can stand up to 3 days if desired.

This made a wonderful addition to a Saturday morning pre-booze cruise brunch! Our liquor store doesn't carry pear liquor, so I had to call an audible and subbed pineapple vodka. Served in a champagne flute, these drunken berries were quite a hit for soon to be drunken guests. THANKS for the recipe, angela!
