Didn't measure the ingredients, just eyeballed. Loved the flavour 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. - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. This is a great little "dessert". I suggest slicing the strawberries as thin as you can vertically, but not too thin. Also, use icing 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! - 29 Sep 2008


Not bad. Next time, I will use a sweeter wine (Peisporter maybe) than Chardonnay. It made the strawberries somewhat bitter. Also, I may try using powdered suger instead of granular. The wine was delicous! - 29 Sep 2008
