Irish Whiskey and Lemon Ginger Cream
Traditional Irish recipe found on the Web.
A touch of Irish whiskey in whipped cream makes this luxurious adult dessert truly special, especially combined with the piquant flavors of ginger and lemon. Elegant but so simple to make, and a lovely way to finish a St. Patrick’s Day meal.
2 tablespoons Irish whiskey
2 tablespoons ginger marmalade
Grated rind of 1 organic lemon
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1 1/4 cups chilled heavy cream
2 egg whites
A few fresh berries for garnish, optional
1. In a medium bowl, place the whiskey, marmalade, lemon rind, and sugar. Stir to combine, then allow to stand for at least 15 minutes.
2. Slowly stir the cream into the whiskey mixture, then beat with an egg beater until thick. Beat egg whites separately until thick, then fold into cream mixture.
3. Gently pour cream into 4 pretty glasses and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Serve chilled, garnished with fresh berries, if desired, or served with gingersnaps.
