- Scotch Mist

Here's a great dessert for summer. You can vary the amount of whisky to taste, of course, but don't overdo it! The quantities should be sufficient for six people.

Three quarters of a pint/15 fluid ounces / 450 ml / two cups (scant) or one US pint of double cream
3 tablespoons whisky (50ml - note that US tablespoons are smaller than those in the UK)
3 ounces / 75g meringues, coarsely crushed
One pound / 450g fresh strawberries, chopped. Keep some strawberry halves back for decoration.
6 leaves of mint

Mix the whisky into the cream and whip until it just holds its shape. Fold in the crushed pieces of meringue and chopped strawberries. Spoon the mixture into six glasses, cover and chill for abou 15/20 minutes.
Decorate each glass with strawberry halves and the mint leaves before serving.
