• Method:

    Scour your local supermarket or home industry for individual meringue nests. Separately whip 15ml bought lemon curd per person and an equal amount of fresh cream, then fold the two together and spoon into the meringue nests. Serve with a limoncello cocktail. For four people, you’ll need 80ml limoncello and 375ml Prosecco or chilled sparkling wine. Divide the limoncello between four champagne flutes, top up with Prosecco or sparkling wine and serve immediately.

    Limoncello, which originates in southern Italy and Sicily, is a lemon-flavoured liqueur, available at most bottlestores.
