Spiced Strawberry Wine Soup
1 (1- lb.) container strawberries sliced
3/4 cup red wine
3 to 4 tbsp. sugar (depending on the sweetness of the berries)
2 lemon slices
1 cinnamon stick
chopped fresh mint for garnish (optional)
mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Prep time: 10 minutes, Cook time: 5 minutes, Cool and chill time: at least 1 1/2 hours

Puree strawberries in a blender or food processor until smooth; set aside. Stir together wine, sugar, lemon slices and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and discard lemon and cinnamon; let cool. Stir mixture into strawberry puree, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until well chilled. Stir in a small pinch of chopped fresh mint, if you like, and spoon into 2 soup bowls. Garnish each with a mint sprig, if you like.

Makes 2 servings.
Wine Suggestion
Kenwood Russian River Pinot Noir - A soft and fruity Pinot like this Sonoma one echoes the strawberry flavors, without overwhelming the soup.
