BERRY SANGRIA SHORTCAKE - Berry Madness Part III


http://themartinidiva.com

The last two days I have regaled you with bunches of fresh berries boozified into bliss as Fresh Berry Sangria and Berry Sangria Cocktail Gels - all resulting from my foray into Berry Madness a few months ago.  Not only did I made all flavors of berry booze, including Blueberry Liqueur and Vodka and Blackberry Liqueur and Vodka, I had so many berries and so much Berry Sangria that I decided they had to become a dessert as well!

I'm berry, berry happy with this recipe.
