Yowza! These strawberries soaked in white wine and sugar are so good. The white wine just brought a whole new dimension to the flavor and made for a nice, woozy dessert. I poured the strawberries over one of those little dessert cups used for strawberry shortcake and the juice soaked though making it just right.
