Marinated summer berries

This easy recipe proves there's no need to mask the clean flavors of fresh berries with heavy cream. Something light and bubbly will do just fine.


1 pint raspberries
1 pint blueberries
1 pint blackberries or boysenberries
4 cups sparkling cider (or champagne*)


  1. Place the berries in a medium bowl.
  2. Pour the cider over the berries.
  3. Let stand for about an hour.
  4. Remove fruit from cider and enjoy.

If you want something creamy, serve the fruit over low-fat or nonfat frozen vanilla yogurt.*
