- 1 pint strawberries
- 1/2 cup Latah Creek Maywine
- 1 tsp. grated lemon peel
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice

Latah Creek’s winemaker blends together premium Washington white wines (usually a combination of Johannisberg Riesling, Chenin Blanc, and Gewurztraminer) with fragrant woodruff herbs and natural strawberry concentrate. This wonderfully fruity wine was developed from a family recipe brought to this country years ago by a Hungarian winemaker who years later passed it on to our winemaker.
Maywine can be served chilled or over ice as a wonderful aperitif. The addition of a floating strawberry in the glass makes a striking presentation. Mix with equal parts of soda water for a refreshing summer cooler. For a quick and easy wintertime mulled wine, heat Maywine in the microwave (do not boil) with a cinnamon stick. Maywine also makes an excellent accompaniment to curry dishes.
