Strawberries & Oranges Macerated in Brandy and Cinnamon

Strawberries are delicious, I don’t know anyone who would argue with that. I love them just as they are mostly, but sometimes I like to give them a boost in flavour by soaking them in alcohol – it brings out the sweetness and creates a quite delicious result! Oranges and strawberries work well together and when you combine them with a little brandy, lemon juice and a hint of cinnamon they work even better.

INGREDIENTS: (serves 2-3)
1 punnet fresh strawberries
2 large oranges (peeled and segmented)
½ lemon (juice of)
2 tablespoons brandy
½ tablespoon sugar
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:
Slice the strawberries and combine with the orange segments. Squeeze over the lemon juice then sprinkle over the brandy, sugar and cinnamon. Stir well to combine then leave for 1 hour in the fridge for the flavours to fully develop.

SERVING:
Serve on its own or over vanilla ice cream.
