Strawberries in Red Wine


  • 2 cups fruity red wine (Merlot, Valpolicella or
  • Zinfandel)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar, or to taste
  • 2 pints strawberries, ripe, rinsed and hulled
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, whipped
  • 8 sprigs fresh mint


  • Note: Start this no longer than 2 hours before you are to serve as marinating the strawberries too long, softens the fruit.
  • Combine the wine, lemon juice and sugar to taste in a deep bowl. Add the strawberries, cutting larger ones in half. Let stand 1 hour at room temperature. Then refrigerate 30 - 60 minutes before serving.
  • To serve, spoon the berries with some of their juices into small bowls. Pass the whipped cream separately or serve a small amount to the side of the berries. Garnish with mint.
