Serves: 8 to 10 srving
Ingredients
  • 5 pints of freshly picked strawberries
  • 1½ cup of Prosecco
  • 1 cup of graduated sugar
  • Lemon peel strips from one large lemon
  • Mint leaves from 4 springs of mint, torn into pieces
  • Mint for garnish
Instructions
  1. Select a large bowl that will feature the finished dish nicely.
  2. Wash the strawberries under cold running water and allow them to drain well. If after draining the strawberries they still seem wet lay them on paper toweling to absorb the remaining water.
  3. Slice the stem off the strawberries, then slice each in half placing the strawberry halves into the bowl. Cover the berries with the lemon strips and sprinkle with the cup of granulated sugar. Gently pour the Prosecco over the strawberries, watching it fizz. Take a spatula and gently turn the berry mixture. Add the torn mint leaves and turn once more.
  4. Place the bowl of scented strawberries into the refrigerator for at least one hour to allow the flavors to merge.
  5. Serve cold garnished with a few mint sprigs.
