Author Notes: Fresh picked cherries macerated in homemade limoncello, it doesn't get much better than that! A perfect combination of sweet & tart and to top it off with a spoonful of whipped cream! —La Tavola Marche
pound cherries, pitted
leaves of mint, plus more for garnish
tablespoons limoncello (depending on how boozy you like it)
sugar to taste
tablespoons heavy cream
- Toss cherries with liquor in a bowl with a little sugar, if cherries are tart add more sugar, if cherries are already sweet you can omit the sugar. Refrigerate for an hour or two.
- In a separate bowl whip the cream, chopped mint & a spoonful of sugar of two. Whipped cream should have just a hint of sweetness to it - not sugary.
- Spoon cherries with syrup into a pretty serving dish or cup (we use a martini glass) and top with a couple spoon full of fresh whipped cream. Garnish with fresh mint. Enjoy!
