Summer Fruit Eton Mess

Although we call it a summer fruit Eton mess, you could add winter berries and make it a winter berry Eton mess. There are just so many variations you can create with the Spice Drops®.


  • 100g fresh raspberries
  • 100g strawberries, washed, hulled and cut into quarters or sliced.
  • 100g blackcurrants
  • 50g cherries, halved and stones removed
  • 40ml Kirsch or another fruit brandy
  • 4 drops Vanilla Spice Drops®
  • 2 drops Saffron Spice Drops®
  • 600ml double cream
  • 30g icing or confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 drops Rose Spice Drops®
  • 3 meringue nests, broken into small pieces by hand


  1. Mix the prepared fruit in a bowl.
  2. In another small bowl, mix the brandy and Vanilla Spice Drops® and Saffron Spice Drops® and add to the prepared fruits. Leave to marinate for an hour.
  3. Take the cream in a bowl and add the icing sugar and Rose Spice Drops® to it. Whip this mixture until it starts to form soft peaks.
  4. Just before serving, fold in the meringue pieces and then the fruit into the cream.
  5. Fold it gently so the fruit juices form gentle ribbons in the cream.
  6. Serve in a bowl, garnishing with fresh berries.
