You can use any assortment of summer berries in this dish and it always tastes great. Traditionally, the recipe uses champagne or marsala wine in the gratin sabyon, but I replace them with St. Germain elderflower liqueur or my own elderflower cordial. I make this by picking fresh elderflower flowers in late May and June and infusing them in a syrup with lemon juice.
