This dessert was made by our friend Aggie which makes the most of the short lived summer berries and looks spectacular.

Marinate your favourite mix of berries in a little vodka and sugar.

On a platter, arrange chunks of meringue and in between place tablespoons of vanilla icecream and/or luscious cream, scatter over the marinated berries and their juice and lastly drizzle over a little aged balsamic.
