Berries In Zin With Galliano Cream & Almond, Pink Peppercorn & Rosemary Biscotti
Wow the crowd with a bowl of delightful, jewel-toned berries in a luscious zinfandel-spiced syrup, topped with Galliano almond cream and flecks of vibrant orange zest. Finish off this festive dish with almond, pink peppercorn, and rosemary biscotti that are crispy, piquant, and perfect for dipping in the syrup or maybe even a glass of Galliano. Serves 4.
- Peel one, 2- to 3-inch strip of zest from the orange. Using a fine rasp, remove the remaining zest from the orange then set the zest aside.
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the wine, water, sugar, and the orange strip, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add spices whole. Bring to a boil until the liquid is reduced to roughly 1 cup, about 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool then refrigerate for a few hours. Once chilled, strain into a bowl with the berries. Cover and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
- In a food processor, combine the ricotta, Galliano, almond extract, and grated orange zest. Process until smooth.Spoon the berries and syrup into 4 goblets and top each with a dollop of the ricotta mixture.
- Garnish with mint, and serve immediately.
