Petit Plaisir au "Cassis"~
I love visiting my favorite French Blogs..I have linked to some before..This time ..it's Eléonora we are visiting~
Her son just got married and she toasted her departure for the wedding and his nuptials with this pretty fresh fruity.. Champagne and Cassis recipe~
It's so light and refreshing..Jacques and I had it on the deck after Puttanesca:)
Perfect sparkling ending to a salty,spicy dish~
100 gr.of raspberries
100gr of blackberries
100gr of blueberries
100gr of red currants
16.9 fluid ounces of champagne or sparkling wine
5.07 fluid ounces of Crème De Cassis
4 gelatin sheets
Clean and stem the fruits.
Mix them and put in 4 pretty glasses or cups..
Put everything in the fridge to keep chilled.. even the wine or champagne.
Warm the Cassis on the stove..
Soften the gelatin in cold water..
Wring out and put in the warmed Cassis .
Stir until dissolved.
Cool to room temp.
Mix the gelatined Cassis with the wine.. and stir .Pour immediately over the fruits..This preserves the bubbles:)
Refrigerate for ap 1 hr.. chilled but not too too cold:)
I used Champagne grapes instead of red currants..
I love this little adult JELLO:)
Très Chic! Merçi Eléonora!
My friend brought me back some beautiful postcards from Paris~ I thought they would look nice w/ her charming dessert~
