4 tablespoons granulated sugar
finely grated zest 1 large lime
assorted fresh berries
3 tablespoons good quality grappa, Vin Santo, limoncello or dessert wine
250 grams firm ricotta* we used a whole ricotta from Clevedon Valley Buffalo Company
jug of pouring cream
Put the sugar and lime zest in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips to infuse the sugar with the lime oil. It will turn a beautiful shade of green.
Arrange the berries on a large platter and pour over the grappa, turning to combine. Sprinkle generously with the lime sugar. Place the ricotta alongside and serve with a jug of pouring cream.
* The ricotta is also delicious drizzled with honey and served with fresh figs when in season.
