Best lighter-than air dessert: Caretta on the Gulf at the Sandpearl Resort

Best lighter-than air dessert

Caretta’s “Florida Heat” dessert will knock you for a loop. Imagine a tower stacking blood orange mousse, pink grapefruit mousse and perfectly torched Italian meringue atop delicate lemon sponge cake. When this much flavor is lighter than air and explosive, yet velvety, on the palate, it’s the kind of surprise that you don’t forget and need to tell the world. Consider yourself told.
