  • 16 ounces strawberries, halved
  • 12 ounces blueberries or blackberries
  • 1/4 cup bourbon (or whichever dark liquor you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 1/3 cup homemade or store bought granola)

    Place berries in the bottom of a wineglass (or other pretty clear dish) followed by yogurt and the granola. Repeat in each glass, layering each parfait with a total of 6 layers. Serve immediately.
