1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 

1/2 cup granulated sugar 

3 tablespoons unsalted butter 

3 eggs, whisked 

2 cups mixed berries, such as raspberries, blackberries and blueberries

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

1/4 cup moscato sparkling wine 

1 1/2 cups heavy cream 


Special equipment:
6 wine glasses; a pastry bag
  1. Put a strainer over a glass bowl. Put the lemon zest and juice and the granulated sugar in a heavy bottom, non-reactive saucepan over high heat and stir until the sugar dissolves, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low, making sure the mixture is below a simmer, and whisk in the butter and eggs. Cook, stirring regularly and taking care to keep it below a simmer, until thickened, 9 to 10 minutes. Strain into the glass bowl, press some plastic wrap on the surface and cool.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the berries, 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar and the sparkling wine in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate while the curd cools.
  3. Whisk the cream and the remaining 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar together in a large bowl until thick and creamy and just under soft peaks. Fold the cream into the cooled lemon mixture. Transfer the chiffon to a pastry bag; snip off the tip of the bag.
  4. Pipe some of the lemon chiffon into the bottoms of the wine glasses, then spoon in some berries with their juices; repeat, finishing with just a few berries on the tops. Serve immediately.
