Blood Orange Gose Glazed Mixed Berry Pavlova
I clearly have a thing for meringue too.
But can you blame me? There’s nothing quite like some fruit covered in blood orange gose glaze on a fluffy cloud of whipped cream and sweet meringue.
This Blood Orange Gose from Anderson Valley Brewing Company has been one of my favorite beers to start off the summer. I’m loving it in my glass and in my food!
It was the perfect beer to use in this recipe because it’s not super salty like some gose style ales, but it’s deliciously tart with a hint of salt that went really well with the fruit. All that business made the perfect topping to cut through the sweetness of whipped cream and meringue. This Blood Orange Gose Glazed Mixed Fruit Pavlova would make any Dad happy on Father’s Day. It’s also a great dessert for any 4th of July cookout or party! Cheers, friends!
