1 tablespoon butter, plus 4 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

2 pounds cream cheese, at room temperature

1 1/2 cups sour cream

12 ounces Goat cheese, at room temperature

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Juice of one lime

2 tablespoons Grand Marnier

2 cups fresh lemon curd

2 cups macerated berries

Press the crustinto the bottom of the prepared pan. In an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Beat in 1 cup sour cream, Goat=s cheese, and sugar. Beat until the mixture is smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla and lime juice and continue to beat until the batter is full incorporated and smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake for about 1 1/2 hours or until the center is set. Remove the cake from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Run a knife around the sides of the pan and remove the cake from the springform. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining sour cream and Grand Marnier. Spread the mixture over the top of the cake. Using a hot knife, slice the cake into 16 slices, wiping the knife after each cut. Serve the cake with the lemon curd and macerated berries.
