Grand Marnier takes this strawberry orange syrup to a whole new level. Substitute orange juice or cook off the alcohol for a kid-friendly version. Strawberry orange syrup is amazing on ice-cream, in drinks or all by itself!
This is a slight adaptation on Art and the Kitchen’s strawberry sauce. Laureen used fresh strawberries so hers is beautiful.
At $6 for 1 cup of fresh strawberries, I opted for frozen so this isn’t as pretty as Laureen’s but it still looks good
The addition of Grand Marnier really takes it over the top. The not-to-sweet orange in the Grand Marnier intensifies the flavor of the strawberries.
If you add the Grand Marnier at the beginning, the alcohol cooks off and you’re left with intense strawberry flavor. If you add it at the end, you can taste the alcohol.
I’ve made this sauce twice now. Once to top a chocolate mousse cake at Easter and once to add some flavor to a strawberry marscapone tart. My friends loved it so much, they just poured it on their plates and spooned it up. You know something is good then your friends do that.
