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

Serves: 4

  • 1 pound cherries, pitted
  • 3-4 leaves of mint, plus more for garnish
  • 2-4 tablespoons limoncello (depending on how boozy you like it)
  • sugar to taste
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
