Wonderful dessert that is light and refreshing. The strawberries marinate in the wine for hours producing a strawberry flavor wine at the bottom of the bowl that everyone will be fighting for. Adjust the amount of sugar depending on the sweetness of the berries you have. Great way to dress up not-too-sweet strawberries! Champagne may be substituted for the wine.

I'm late with this review. I used less than 1/2 c. powdered sugar and "Three Buck Chuck" White Zin. Marinated 24 hours. I served over chunks of light Angel Food cake and topped with Cool Whip. My guests were salivating! THE FIRST TIME I MADE THIS MY FRIEND HUSBAND AND I JUST TOOK SPOONS AND HUDDLED OVER THE BOWL! Read More

This is a good low cal recipe for those days you are craving sugar. I made with Chardonnay and let sit overnight. I would love to try this with a good champagne. Read More

Didn't measure the ingredients, just eyeballed. Loved the flavor that the wine emparts to the strawberries. Used a New Zealand sauvignon blanc. You don't want a chardonnay because this variental's characteristics would bite with the fruit. Read More

This is a great little "dessert". I suggest slicing the strawberries as thin as you can vertically but not too thin. Also use confectioners sugar because it will dissolve easier. I have them sitting in Moet and Chandon White Star Champagne. It's not too sweet but it has the kick that soda gives you. GREAT! Read More
