2 cups hulled and quartered strawberries
1 (750 ml) bottle Riesling, preferably chilled
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a blender or food processor, combine the strawberries, Riesling, sugar and lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and churn until a slushy/icy mixture has formed. Pour into serving glasses, garnish with additional berries if desired, and serve immediately.
*Because I’m sure someone will ask, I haven’t tried this without an ice cream maker so I can’t say for certain whether that will work. However, I think that if you added maybe 50% more strawberries (to decrease the overall percentage of alcohol, thereby making the mixture more amenable to freezing), and used a granita technique, you would have something pretty darn close. If you try it, let me know!
