Orange Mousse

Want to cool down on a hot summer day? This orange mousse will accomplish exactly that while also giving you the feeling of being on a tropical island, sipping cocktails in a luxurious resort and watching the sun set on the ocean horizon. And hey, you do not even have to leave your kitchen to enjoy that kind of feeling.

    For the mousse:
    Whisk the egg, egg yolk and sugar. Add the orange zest and its juice. Beat together in a warm bain-marie until the foam is firm. Add the gelatine while stirring until it is dissolved. Stir in the orange liquor, then remove the bowl from the bain-marie. Place the bowl in cold water and stir occasionally. Do this until the mixture has cooled down. Beat the egg white with a mixer until its stiff. Add the sugar and briefly continue whisking the foam. Fold the stiff egg white and sugar mix into the orange cream together with the cream (cream needs to be beaten stiff before). Do this very carefully not to lose any volume. Then carefully spoon the mass on top of the biscuit. Cover the pots and put in the fridge to chill for at least 1 hr.
