Red Wine Reduction Dessert Sauce

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"I got these recipe ingredients from Chef Bruce at the Red Rooster Cafe in New Braunfels, TX. I serve this sauce with fresh blackberries from my dad's garden. Layer in a wine glass, sweetened whipped cream, berries, sauce, then more whipped cream. Top with a berry and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar. So good! They also use this sauce on their Monte Cristo Sandwich."

I looked up this recipe to copy a dessert I had at a local restaurant. Take this syrup and pour it over dates and top with some whipped Marscapone cheese. Heaven!

I’m on a low carb diet, so I substituted stevia for the sugar and then used xanthan gum to thicken the sauce. It’s still probably not very low carb, but absolutely delicious!!!

I used this on top of cupcakes with Pinot noir buttercream. It was beautiful drizzled over the top. Unfortunately within a short amount of time, it was gone...some had run off and some seemed to...

This is so good and so easy. A definite keeper!
