White Marshmallow And Cointreau Mousse

Because I so loved my pink marshmallow mousse I decided to make a White Marshmallow And Cointreau Mousse. For this awesome and easy dessert I used Cointreau to add a nice orange flavour. As you can see, I served it with fresh strawberries. I have these great martini glasses that I often use for desserts. They add a touch of panache to the end of the meal. Marshmallows make a great setting agent.

White Marshmallow And Cointreau Mousse

Cointreau is an orange-flavoured triple sec liqueur produced in Saint-Barthélemy-d’Anjou, France. It is the one alcoholic drink I try and bring back with me everytime we go overseas. We have a very small alcohol allowance for South Africa so be sure to check it out if you are planning on flying in here with alcohol. As orange is a great flavour compliment to strawberries this seemed like the perfect alcohol to use for my dessert. But if I were to drink this, I would just have it neat. I suppose that sometime in the future I should try and make cocktails instead. And ones that can compliment the desserts I make.
