Okay, a lot of people refuse to come to my house unless I swear I'm making dessert (so, apparently, all those cooking classes weren't for naught!).
This Thanksgiving, I decided to make something different. I took my patented-works-every-time filched-from-the-Silver-Palate-Cookbook Amaretto Chocolate Mousse recipe, replaced the amaretto with framboise, cut out the sugar, soaked two pints of fresh raspberries in a mixture of framboise and very good tequila (anejo), then laddeled the mousse mixture into individual cups over the marinated raspberries, addiing 1/2 teaspoon of the framboise/tequila mix to each cup.
Guaranteed to send you into hypoglycemic shock before you can get to the door! And NO calories! Honest!
In the spirit of the current ecumenical political partnership, I have decided to name my creation after...well, you guess:
LE DRUNKEN MOUSSE!
