“This recipe was developed for the 11th RSC Contest. In the process of coming up with something totally different I ended up with this. I think the honey and brandy really accentuate the sweet strawberries and then mixed with the wine, mmmmm. I used a sweeter Chardonnay but any white wine would work. The strawberry mixture should be made up ahead of time so that it can cool. Cooking time does NOT include cooling time. I enjoy mine with a few ice cubes. This would be perfect for brunch or Valentine's Day.”

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the honey, blood orange juice, and sugar and heat until the sugar dissolves. Add the brandy and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add strawberries and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes or until the strawberries have lost their firmness.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. When the stawberry mixture is cool, place in a blender and puree for one minute or until smooth. Add wine and stir.
  5. Pour into wine glasses (with ice if desired) and garnish with a ripe strawberry.
