Grapes & Strawberries in Grappa
From EatingWell: March/April 1997
Sweetened grappa gives fresh fruit a decidedly Greek flavor. Try serving this over lightly sweetened ricotta for a special treat.
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup grappa
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 pint strawberries, hulled and halved or sliced
- 1 1/2 cups red seedless grapes, halved lengthwise
- Fresh mint sprigs, for garnish
- Combine sugar, grappa and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Place over low heat, swirling just until sugar dissolves.
- Combine strawberries, grapes and grappa syrup In a medium bowl. Refrigerate until cold. Serve garnished with mint sprigs.
