Sentimental: Berry and pistachio verrines

 Actually I promise that I will make this dessert a long time ago, but due to my bad habit ^^" of wanting to do everything, I just manage to do it lately.

Sentimental: Berry and pistachio verrines
 The combination of pistachio and berry is not new, but it always gives us a lovely result, red blue and green, they are like little jewels that you can eat.
This time they comes together in a glass, the verrines dessert that easy to serve, I make this after I saw the idea from Oriental hotel's pastry shop, I love both the look and the taste of it, well, the recipe is not the same but I just want to recreate it, that's all ^^.
The dessert start from Pistachio Crème brûlée, follow by the berry jelly and for the cake part pistachio joconde, on the top is  mascarpone cream, then decorate it with pistachio joconde and mixed berries which they give a lovely colors.
I choose to use Kirsch for giving this verrines a kick, because the smell of it can go very well with both berry and pistachio.
This dessert meant to be serve as soon as it ready, but with only 4 glasses I know that it's not hard to finish it, right?
