  • 1 Tablespoon Grand Marnier
  • 1 Tablespoon water
Whipped Cream
  • 1 1/2 Cups heavy or whipping cream
  • 1/2 Cup confectioners' sugar

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, add quartered and halved strawberries, sugar, Grand Marnier and water. Toss gently but thoroughly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes. Sugar grains should be dissolved.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add cream, vanilla and confectioners' sugar. Whip until stiff peaks are formed. Refrigerate.
