Whisk the Cream

Don't have any blackberry brandy? Don't worry. Just use some dark berry fruit jam or preserves. Melt a tablespoon of the preserves in a small saucepan with 2 teaspoons water. Once melted, remove from the heat. Set aside to cool. Add 1 tablespoon brandy or cognac. Use in place of Blackberry Brandy.
