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
