Berries and gin are a gorgeous combination and not only in a cocktail. For a winning dessert, we've folded a jammy blackberry and raspberry ripple through gin-infused ice-cream, and sandwiched it between crisp discs of meringue. Use fresh berries when they're in season; otherwise frozen work fine.
Note Crème de mûre is a blackberry liqueur available from select bottle shops. If unavailable, substitute with crème de cassis or extra gin. Another way to serve this bramble ripple ice-cream and meringue is Eton mess style. Crush meringues and layer in glasses or a serving bowl with bramble ripple ice-cream and syrup, finishing with a little extra syrup.
