Method

  1. Tip the strawberries into a large bowl. Splash over the Cointreau, add the orange zest and sift in the icing sugar, then give everything a really good mix. Cover, then leave for 1 hr or more for the juices to become syrupy and the strawberries to soak up some of the alcohol.
  2. To serve, scatter the mint leaves over the strawberries and give them one more good stir, then spoon into individual glass dishes.

This was a really easy desert to prepare after making a fiddly main meal. You can prep this and chill it whilst eating your main!

I found the conintreau quite punchy though, and perhaps not to everones taste. I served this in individual sundae dishes with some strawberries and cream shortbread and they looked really cute!

I have made this several times now, used triple sec instead of cointreau, delicious every time
