Mint Julep-Flavored Strawberries

Mint Julep-Flavored Strawberries 1.000
Cooking for One Jun 25, 2008

This is a light, slightly boozy dessert. The berries are great by themselves or with vanilla ice cream.

Servings: 1
  • 2/3 cup strawberries, hulled and cut vertically in half
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon good-quality vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 5 mint leaves, rolled and cut into thin ribbons (chiffonade)


Combine the berries, bourbon, vanilla extract, sugar and mint in a medium bowl, tossing gently. Eat immediately, or, for stronger flavor, omit the mint, then cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day; toss in the mint just before serving, so it doesn't discolor.
