Very little needs to be done with summer fruit to make it extraordinary, but as your farmstand strawberries start to soften, a quick dip in citrus liqueur and sugar is a perfect second act. Boozy, macerated berries top vanilla ice cream in this simple sundae from Anna Watson Carl of The Yellow Table blog.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • ¼ cups fresh orange juice
  • ¼ cups Grand Marnier
  • ¼ cups turbinado sugar
  • 2 tsp. finely grated orange zest
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving

In a large bowl, stir together the strawberries, orange juice, Grand Marnier, sugar, and orange zest. Set aside to rest at room temperature for 1 hour. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

‘Tis the season for shortcake, spritzes, and sorbet—and for berry-filled savory snacks, too.
