California Strawberry Mint Sangria

July 7, 2008

Had the pleasure of eating some California Strawberries and some fun recipes prepared by Top Chef contestant CJ (the really tall one). I didn’t try this yet, but doesn’t this sangria recipe sound so yummy and refreshing??


  • 1 pint Strawberries
  • 1 cup Mint Leaves
  • 1 bottle Chardonnay
  • 3 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • Squeeze of Lime Juice
  • Mint Sprigs and Sliced Strawberries for garnish

To read how to prepare, Add water, sugar and strawberries and half of the mint to a pot. Bring the pot to a boil, then down to simmer for 5 minutes. Allow cooling, and then place contents, the remainder of the mint and a squeeze of lemon into a blender. Blend for 3 minutes and strain. Allow the mixture to chill, then add to the Chardonnay. Mix well; garnish with a sliced strawberry along the rim and a mint sprig in the glass.
