A Glass of Strawberries With Limoncello & Mint


I'm on to the last batch of stawberries I bought.  I prepared them the only way my 5-year old would eat them.  Halved or quartered with white sugar & a light squeeze of a lemon.  He's in berry heaven when he has a bowl in front of him.  For us adults, I prepared it the typical Italian way.  Like my son's but with a dash of Limoncello & mint leaves.  Sometimes I couple it with Vermouth or just Vermouth alone.
