Summer Wine Cup

Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Brandy / Wine

    6.00 ea Fresh woodruff sprigs
    1.00 ea Bottle dry white wine
    -(not too cheap)
    0.50 pt Orange juice
    4.00 oz Strawberries or raspberries
    7.00 oz Ginger ale
    3.00 oz Brandy
    20.00 ea Borage flowers

Leave the woodruff sprigs for 1 hr. to wilt slightly. This will bring out their vanilla-like flavor. Put them into a bowl and pour on the wine and orange juice. Leave for 1 hr. and strain. Quarter the strawberries if they are large. Leave the raspberries whole, if using. Put the fruit into a punch bowl. Pour on the strained liquid. Cover with plastic wrap and chill 30 mins. Pour the brandy and the ginger ale into the bowl. Float the borage flowers on top. Serve as soon as possible in tall glasses so as not to lose the slightly sparkling effect of the ginger ale.
