1⁄3 cup frozen berries
1 3/4 cups black currant juice or other red juice of your choice
1 1⁄3 cup water
FOR THE MAPLE WHIPPED CREAM:
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons maple syrup
fresh berries for decoration
- Mix together the fruit tea, berries, currant juice, and water, and bring it to a boil. Remove from heat, and let it sit for about 25 minutes.
