  • 140 g of granulated sugar
  • ½ dl of water
  • 1 dl of mastiha
  • 3 dl of whipping cream Accardi
  • 500 g of strawberries
  • 1 bunch of mint


Separate the yolks and put them in a bowl of a planetary mixer. Then beat them with the sugar cooked with water at 121 °. Whip everything until it cools.
