Did you need a choice? Turn this into a smoothie at serving time by running it in the blender again OR scrape up spoonfuls into pretty serving dishes and drizzle with more WINE or gingerale. Either way--this is sure to capture your Valentine's heart! Just watch out for those brain-freeze headaches!!! COOKING TIME = CHILLING TIME.

This is very sweet and intensely fruity. I made it with frozen strawberries and blackberries. I served it in a dessert glass topped with prosecco. I think this would be good as a topping for ice cream. This recipe can easily serve 10. Thanks. Made for ZWT 6

I was intrigued with this recipe right from the start, but since neither I nor my other half consume booze, I ended up making this for a neighbor couple we knew would enjoy it, & they did, VERY MUCH SO! Another time, though, & I might just simmer the honey wine & brandy until the alcohol burns off & then make the recipe again for our own consumption! Whatever the case, many thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]

5 Stars - Oh wow! This was so easy, & made a wonderfully refreshing after dinner drink. We filled wine glasses half full with scoops of the frozen base & then stirred in Sprite soda. DH is more of a beer kinda guy & he had 3 of these! The rest of us had 2, which altogether made a total of 8 drinks on this one recipe. We drank them instead of eating with a spoon. The mixture was in the stand-up freezer in the garage for at least 8 hours & it never froze solid. I expected to scrape the mixture layer by layer like I have done with similar recipes in the past, but the mixture was too soft to do that with. It was more like packed wet snow… that tasted fabulous! We will be making this again without changes, except maybe to try other berry combinations. Made, enjoyed & reviewed for RSC#11, January 2008.
