Fresh Berries with Bourbon Whipped Cream

I made a lime infused simple syrup to toss my berries in! Yum. To add some different texture to this dessert I made crunchy toffee lacy cookies. The whipped cream is freshly made with vanilla and bourbon :)

Bourbon Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 tbsp of bourbon
  • 2 tbsp of icing sugar

Mix all ingredients on high till hard peaks form. Store in fridge till ready to serve. Since there are no stabilizers in this whip cream it will lose some of the air you whipped in over time,  so I tend to make this in my mixer close to the time I want to serve it :)

Lime Infused Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup of water
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • zest and juice from 1 lime

Place water and the sugar in a saucepan and heat till sugar dissolves. Take off heat add the lime zest and lime juice, give it a quick stir. May keep in fridge for 1 week.

Berry Salad

  • 1 cup of chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries
  • 1/2 cup of blackberries
  • 1 tbsp of freshly chopped mint

Add berries to large bowl, drizzle in your simple syrup to coat berries. Toss well. Serve with Bourbon Whipped Cream.  Qu'est-ce que vous manger?
