Ingredients

3 cups ripe strawberries, washed and hulled
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons cassis (black currant-flavored liqueur) or creme de mures (blackberry-flavored liqueur)
3/4 cup dry, fruity red wine
1 tablespoon shredded peppermint leaves
4 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
Cookies (optional)

Directions

1. Quarter the berries, and place them in a bowl with the sugar, liqueur, wine, and mint. Mix well, and serve immediately, or refrigerate (for up to 8 hours) until serving time.
2. Spoon the berries and marinade into wine goblets for serving. If desired, top each dessert with a dollop of sour cream, and serve it with a cookie.

Jacques Pepin notes that it is essential to choose perfectly ripe strawberries for this dish.
