BERRY CUSTARD COCKTAIL RECIPE
1. PLACE 3 tablespoons of custard in the bottom of a Martini glass.
2. TOP with berries. Drizzle an optional tablespoon of orange liqueur—Grand Gala, Grand Marnier, triple sec, etc.—over the berries.
3. GARNISH with optional mint sprig and serve.
Custard is semisoft preparation of milk or cream and eggs, thickened with heat. It can be cooked on top of the stove or baked in the oven.
Custards can be sweet or savory, spanning desserts and dessert sauces to quiche and savory custard tarts.
