Preparation

For the Cocktail:

For the Syrup:

Step 1:

Rinse the berries and drain well. Place in a large saucepan with the sugar, and crush. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently, and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, and set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Add the wine, and stir to combine. Store in the refrigerator for two hours, or as long as overnight.

Step 2:

Strain the wine-fruit puree through a sieve, capturing the syrup in a bowl.

Step 3:

Bring the finished syrup to a boil.
