Happy New Year!

Hello and happy 2011! I've decided to give you a dessert from New Year's Eve. It's easy. (Unfortunately it's easier to find fresh fruit in summer)

If you can find the fruit fresh then use that, if not you can use frozen, but not as good.

Depending on how many guests you have will determine the amount so I'll just give you the ingredients and you can determine the proportions.You can also throw different fruit if you'd like.
Blueberries
Strawberries
Raspberries
Sliced Bananas
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
White Dessert Wine.

Mix the fruit together in a bowl. In a martini glass (or Bowl) put in a scoop of Ice Cream, then add a 1/2 cup of fruit mixture, then pour 1/4 cup of dessert wine over the top and serve. Very refreshing.

Wines you can use are: Late-harvest wines: Semillon, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc.  Or you can go to your wine store and look in the dessert wine section.
