Boozy Macerated Strawberries

Boozy Macerated Strawberries atop a healthy scoop of French vanilla ice cream is a pleasure known to those who worship summer fruits.

If there's one technique you need to learn for delicious desserts, one method to knock it out of the park every time, it's how to macerate the lovely strawberry.

Boozy, Macerated Strawberries are a method more than they are a recipe, and entirely simple.

Hull and slice the strawberries and add them to a large bowl.

Add in the orange juice, fruited liqueur, sugar, and orange zest.

Stir and allow to sit at room temperature, covered, for about 3 hours.

Serve with French vanilla ice cream, over waffles, with sweetened whipped Ricotta, with a drizzle of salted or smoked honey, or in a bowl with homemade whipped cream.

Boozy, Macerated Strawberries are a bright flavor profile. Because of the sweetness, they pair incredibly well with both salt and smoke.

My most recent dessert bar began with macerated berries, pound cake cut into small-ish squares, whipped Ricotta cheese, fresh whipped cream, and both salted and smoked honey.
