Whether you’re out east or on the west coast, we can all agree it’s been one hot summer! Here is a nice treat (adults only) to help you unwind and cool off. I also included an alternative if you don’t happen to have all the ingredients at home. Both are great. So mix this up, kick off your shoes and sip this under the fan or air conditioner.
Serving size: 1 Diva
- 1 cup light red wine
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 ounce Cognac
- 1 pound strawberries, quartered
Combine wine, sugar and cognac. Stir in strawberries and refrigerate until cold, about 20 minutes (even better, do before dinner and let sit until dessert). Serve over ice cream.
Here’s another twist that I recently found. Take any “Freeze and Squeeze” packet available by some of your favorite brands like Arbour Mist and sold at Walmart. After the pack has frozen, squeeze over chopped fruit such as strawberries. The strawberries will help break down the drink and turn into a nice frozen drunk strawberry.
