Meringue is sweet dessert that originated in Switzerland. It is commonly made up of egg whites together with icing sugar. There are a lot of recipes that can be done using meringue such as meringue cookies and pavlova. Also, it can be easily infused with different flavors because the base it self has only a neutral taste which is just sweet, because of the sugar content.

In this recipe, strawberry is called for. It will contrast the sweetness of the meringue with the natural sweet and sour flavor of the fresh strawberries. It also comes with strawberry syrup, but you can always disregard using it, if you don't feel to.
