Springtime Berries Dessert

A super quick yet fresh and decadent dessert, this potent concoction is made up entirely of fresh berries like strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. It's springtime, so these various berries are in abundance and are perfect as an after-dinner dessert. An excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants, these berries offer a healthy and delicious choice.

The tartness of the berries contrasts well with the sweet and creamy sauce, which is made up of sour cream, fine sugar and your choice of liquor (which gives this dessert that extra punch). Choices of liquor include dark rum or any types of fruit-flavored liqueurs. Fine tune the amount of sugar and alcohol according to your taste. Top it with a sprig of fresh mint leaves and you have yourself an elegant yet easy-to-make dessert that should impress all your friends. Although I used a wine glass for serving, a much better vessel would be a margarita glass, with its bigger opening for easier access to the fruits.
