Irish Whiskey Parfaits

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

From Good Food Magazine, March 1986. This is not only a great dessert for St. Patrick's Day, but works well for other special occasions. The swirl of raspberry preserves gives it a nice party touch. The 4 hours of freezing time has not been included in the preparation time.

Great dessert, both the wife and I enjoyed. Just the perfect amount of whiskey here giving this one great taste. Want to try it with other preserves too in the future. Made for PRMR tag.
