Strawberry Bowle

Bowle is a sparkling wine drink that makes a beautiful beverage for any special occasion. It's sort of like a sparkling wine punch and is served out of a large punch bowl. My mom often makes bowle as a pre Thanksgiving dinner drink, which nobody is ever opposed to. Although it would be ideal to make this in the summer when strawberries are in season, it makes a great festive drink for the holidays or New Year's Eve. The wine I used in this bowle was a Chenin Blanc, but you could also use Riesling or something similar. The amount of sugar you add to the strawberries depends on your preference. If you want a sweet drink add a little more, especially since the strawberries available this time of the year are not very sweet on their own.

1 pint fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
1 bottle Chenin Blanc (or another similar wine)
3 bottles Prosecco (sparkling wine), chilled

In a medium bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar, and white wine. Cover and leave in your fridge overnight. When ready to serve, pour the strawberries and white wine into a punch bowl. Add the Prosecco and serve. Pin It Now!
