Two Great Wine Recipies

Wine is an incredibly sophisticated beverage that anyone can enjoy, whether they are a teetotaler or not. Because of this, wine is a great gift for anybody because it is such a versatile drink.

When you give the bottle of wine to its recipient, put it in a nice wine gift bag and tie one of these recipes to the top to finish off a great gift.

These are two great recipes that are great for any occasion, even if the person you are giving the wine to doesn’t drink:

Cabernet Strip Steaks

  • 1/2 cup of cabernet wine
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 2 New York Strip steaks, 1 1/2 inches thick

Create the marinade by mixing together the wine, soy sauce, rosemary, thyme, olive oil, garlic, pepper, and salt. Place the steaks inside the marinade and seal in an airtight plastic bag. Put it in the refrigerator and allow it to marinate for 2 hours. 

Preheat your grill to 500 degrees. Take the steaks out of the marinade and place on the grill. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Take the steaks off the grill and let them sit under aluminum foil for an additional 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

Ice Cream with Sauvignon sauce

  • 2 cups of Sauvignon Blanc wine
  • 1 cup of triple sec
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup of blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of strawberries
  • 1/4 cup of raspberries
  • 2 cups of vanilla bean ice cream
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • A dash of cinnamon

Mix together the wine, triple sec, egg yolks, and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Using a double boiler to keep the sauce from scalding, cook on a stovetop for 25 minutes at 350 degrees while stirring constantly.

Chill a metal bowl for 30 minutes in a freezer. Remove from the freezer and combine the heavy whipping cream, 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, and vanilla and mix on high with an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks form, approximately 2 minutes.

Once the sauce is cooled and the whipped cream is made, place half of the ice cream, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries in a bowl. Drizzle a generous portion of the sauce on each bowl. Finish it off with whipped cream and a dusting of powdered sugar and cinnamon and serve.
