Boozey Strawberries

Craving something simple and elegant? Make these Boozey Strawberries!

The flavor is fresh and fruity, with just a splash of port wine. Port wine is actually called "porto" and originates from Portugal (woot woot). It is a dessert wine, meaning the flavor is more on the sweet side. I am far more of a wine person than beer, so this addition to the recipe is particularly awesome (take a glass of port wine, add a little sprite and you have a delightful spritzer).

Think of this as a very simple sangria, with mush less alcohol content.

What I love most is that the strawberries are baked. This smoothly draws out the juices from the strawberries and makes them warm and tender.

They go great with just about everything. And I do mean- everything.

Top it off on a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
Use it to add some lovin to some muffins.
Trade in your boring morning jam on that slice of toast.
Hell, eat it straight out of the bowl : )
