I learned the coolest trick from the Fairmont Laurier’s tea room – and it’s just perfect to whip out for the Fourth of July. I don’t know if it’s unpatriotic of me to recommend a recipe that calls for Canadian ice wine, but I’m not going to read anything into it. I’m proud to be an American – but no one freezes their grapes like the Canadians.
Here’s why you need that Canadian ice wine:
These fresh summer strawberries were tossed lightly with fine sugar (just to sweeten any lingering sour notes), placed in a cocktail glass, then drizzled with sweet, honey-like ice-wine and topped with luscious freshly whipped cream.
It’s a show-stopper. And it is perfect for a summer evening – or a Fourth of July party. Even if it’s pretty darn Canadian.
Thanks to the Fairmont Laurier for getting me in on their fantastic Canadian-style high tea!
