Ingredients

  • 6-12 strawberries, hulled and roughly chopped
  • 300ml sparkling sweet rosé (we used Barefoot Pink Moscato Bubbly, widely available)
  • A few fresh basil leaves, finely sliced, plus extra tiny ones to top
  • 6 small slices madeira cake, cut into pieces (see tips)
  • 125g ricotta
  • 200ml double cream
  • 2-3 heaped tbsp icing sugar
  • Squeeze lemon juice
  • A few amaretti biscuits, crumbled

Method

  1. Divide the strawberries among 6 cocktail glasses, then pour a good splash of fizz into each one. Scatter over some basil and top with the cake pieces (don’t push down too much).
  2. Mix the ricotta, cream, 2 tbsp icing sugar and lemon juice, then taste – it may need a bit more sugar. Whip with an electric mixer or balloon whisk until the mixture just holds its shape.
  3. Divide among the trifles, top with crumbled amaretti biscuits and small basil leaves (see tip), then serve.

  1. Change the flavours slightly by using fresh thyme or shredded mint leaves.

    Don’t break the madeira cake into pieces – cut it cleanly so stray crumbs don’t spoil the finished look.
