Makes 4 servings

It's hard to improve on a bowl of fresh, juicy summer berries, though a dollop of liqueur-scented crème fraîche does "gild the lily" with elegance and sophistication. Serve this on a hot summer day.

6 cups mixed berries, such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries

3 tablespoon sugar, divided, or to taste

¾ cup (6 ounces) crème fraîche

2 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Orange zest and sprigs of fresh mint for garnish

Stir the berries with 1 tablespoon of the sugar in a medium bowl. Taste and adjust the sweetness.

Whisk together the crème fraîche, the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, liqueur, and vanilla in a small bowl.

Spoon the berries into individual dessert bowls and top with the crème fraîche mixture. Garnish with a sprinkling of orange zest and mint sprigs.
