Mixed Berry Salad with Scotch and Sorbet

Mixed Berry Salad with Scotch and Sorbet

Here’s a light, healthy, refreshing dessert that takes just a few minutes to pull together and an hour or more to chill. You can add ½ cup of mango purée or ripe mango pulp to the fruit mixture. The dish also works well with strawberry, lemon, mango or lime sorbet. 

  • ½ cup green seedless grapes
  • ½ cup red seedless grapes
  • ½ cup melon balls
  • ½ cup mixed berries
  • 1/3 cup scotch whiskey
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pint raspberry sorbet

1. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients except the sorbet. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

2. Distribute the fruit evenly among 6 rock glasses, making sure to use all the syrup.  Top each glass with a scoop of the sorbet.

Note: You can buy a small utensil called a melon-baller and scoop the melon balls out of fresh melons for yourself. One half cup of melon balls, taken from a full-size cantaloupe or honeydew, will be the equivalent of one medium wedge.
