Strawberries Romanoff Tips

What’s the best way to hull strawberries for strawberries Romanoff?

Can you replace the orange juice with orange liqueur or brandy?

You can certainly replace orange juice with liqueur or brandy, but it’s best to adjust the quantity to taste because alcohol tends to carry a stronger flavor than juice. Experiment with using 1-2 tablespoons first before using the entire 1/4 cup as called for in the recipe.

Can you make strawberries Romanoff ahead of time?

Strawberries Romanoff is an easy dessert to toss together in a manner of minutes, but it doesn’t hold up for long after it’s assembled. To get a head start, prepare and store each component separately. Wash, hull and store your strawberries in a container between paper towels to absorb any excess water. Add your confectioners’ sugar to the berries just 15-20 minutes before serving, and whip the cream while the berries sit. Add your orange juice or liqueur to the beaten cream, and serve.
