Simple Strawberry Sauce with Liqueur

Magical things happen when you sprinkle sugar on the strawberries and leave them for few hours. Amazing flavors develop while the strawberries marinate and the sauce is left with a sweet aroma! So, if you want a simple strawberry sauce as a topping for your frozen yogurt or ice cream, here is what you need to know:

Make sure to use a bowl that has a lid. Take fresh strawberries, wash them, and cut them in half. Place them in the bowl and add sugar. I usually add 4 tbsp per pint so it about covers the strawberries. You can then add 4 tbsp of liqueur or any sweet alcohol that you might have. Close the lid and shake the container so strawberries can mix with the ingredients. Next, leave the bowl on the counter for 2 hours. You can also leave it overnight in the refrigerator.

Once the time has passed, you can serve it as is, or you can put them in mixer and blend them into a fine-textured sauce. I prefer to blend them as shown in the picture below. I used it as a topping for frozen yogurt and then sprinkled on few almonds. I put the rest of the strawberry sauce in mini parfait glasses and placed them in the freezer overnight. We at them the next day.
