Red Wine with Strawberries
(Fraises au Vin Rouge)
This drink is a French favorite, pairing sweet seasonal strawberries with fruity red wine. We suggest using a young pinot noir or beaujolais.
4 cups strawberries
2–3 tbsp. sugar
1 bottle red wine
1. Wash, hull, and halve strawberries lengthwise. Sprinkle berries with sugar, mix gently, then set aside to macerate for about 1 hour.
2. Divide berries among four wine glasses, then pour approximately 6 oz. of red wine to cover berries.
