Strawberry Wine Coolers

Can I first of all tell you you're lucky you get a picture of this delightful beverage at all, even a bad one with my couch in the background? This was wine night and my ladies were patient enough to wait for a picture only because these were so beautiful and amazing. So, anyways...

Wine coolers are pretty lame when they come out of the barely alcoholic six-pack from the grocery store. However, when you make them at home and serve them in jumbo glasses and add a touch of vodka, well then, they are a wine night specialty. They're pretty, they're pink and they're delicious. What more could a girl want? Maybe some strawberry wine sorbet to pair with it...but more on that later.

Strawberry Wine Coolers
makes 4-6 large drinks

adapted from Annie's Eats

1 lb fresh strawberries, hulled, plus more for garnish
1/4 cup of chilled vodka
Pinch of coarse salt
2 bottles chilled white wine, such as Riesling

Combine strawberries, vodka, salt and 2 cups of white wine in a blender and mix until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and return to refrigerator until ready to serve.

To serve, fill a large glass with ice. Fill halfway with strawberry mixture, then top off with more white wine. Garnish with whole fresh strawberries.
