Summer Fruit Mousse

"This is definitely one of my favorite recipes. It is from my ultimate cookbook, Great Housekeeping. I've been making this for years and it impresses every time. It also works well if you use mango pulp instead of the mixed soft fruits. Feel free to leave out the alcohol, I only add it when I it's on hand since it doesn't greatly affect the taste. I'm not too sure of the prep time and serving size so I've only written approximations. Enjoy!"

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

My name is Sangeeta, I've just moved to Prague from London. My best friend and I love cooking. Actually it's more "love eating", but still. Living in the Czech Republic can be quite limiting sometimes when I want to source ingredients, but I go back to England regularly and pack my suitcase full of food! Sometimes food is more important than clothes!
