Berries with Orange Sabayon

Serving Size  : 4    

Mixed berries- I use blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.

  3        tablespoons  sugar
  7         whole  egg yolks
  2        tablespoons  orange juice
  1        teaspoon  lemon juice
  1        teaspoon  orange zest
  1        teaspoon  lemon zest
  2        tablespoons  orange liqueur — such as Grand Marnier OR a few drops of orange extract

Whisk the sugar and egg yolks in a large metal mixing bowl until frothy.  Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water (to create a double-boiler) and whisk until the yolks become pale yellow in color.

Continue to whisk over low to medium heat until the mixture begins to thicken, about 10 minutes. Add the juices and zests and continue to whisk so the sauce thickens back up again. Add the liqueur and whisk until incorporated and the sabayon is light, fluffy and has good volume, 2 minutes longer.
