Ready In:
2 1/2 bottles (approximately)




  • Wash strawberries, remove stems and cut in half. Put in a bowl and sprinkle with the sugar. Wash the lemon in warm water and peel off thin strips of rind with a sharp knife. Finely chop one peeled lemon rind strip and add the lemon juice and chopped rind to the strawberries. Refrigerate. After two hours (the sugar should be dissolved) pour off the resulting strawberry juice and put to one side. Pour wine on the strawberries until covered and refrigerate further for 2 hours. Shortly before serving add the strawberry juice, remaining wine, and sparkling wine and decorate the bowl with remaining lemon strips.

    This was a hopeful last minute drink I prepared it last night and got to sip it tonight with a Queen. Delightful and I plan to make the whole amout next week. I cut back on the amounts so I could do the recipe. This was just perfect. Made for ZWT$ challenge for the Chic Chefs.

    Just so delicious and how could you go wrong with fresh strawberries from the garden? I used a special German wine that was given to us during the holiday season so this turned into a special treat in many ways. I sliced my lemons and floated them on top of the punch, and used some peel in the punch. The sparkling wine really enhanced the strawberry flavor and brought this all together. I easily halved this and was able to give everyone a nice glass of this bubbly drink and all was right with the world. Thank you evelyn/athens Made for ZWT4 June 2008.

    This was a tasty punch. Very refreshing! I zested one lemon into the strawberries and reserved the other peel for garnish. The longer the punch sits the better it tastes. Made for ZWT4.

    Great Punch! The problem was to find a German Sparkling wine but finally I managed. The result was a great not too sweet punch that we all liked. I liked it mostly because its wasn't so sweet so it was refresing. And a great color as well. A great out of the ordinary punch.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
