Happy Cinco de Mayo! I love a good margarita as much as the next person, but I also love a good pisco sour. So sometimes I try and make both those drinks happen in some way at the same time and because its strawberry season this drink was created:
We bought some lovely strawberries from Maple Ridge Farm last week and it was quite a challenge to not eat them all before we got home!
But we already had some vanilla ice cream so we needed something to top it off with and what better than with macerated strawberries.
Here’s how you can make this simple but delicious dessert:
Start by cutting up your strawberries
Put the strawberries into a bowl and sprinkle with two heaping tablespoons of lavender flower sugar. The more sugar you add the sweeter they will be so if you want super sweet strawberries add more sugar!
Place the bowl in the refrigerator and let sit for a couple of hours.
When you take them out you can add them to ice cream like we did or put them on top of scones, shortcake, or yogurt!
