Whether you’d like to admit it or not, everyone loves a good game of bingo, whether you're playing at a hall or your favorite new bingo sites online there is no better way to enjoy it than with a pitcher of cool refreshing cocktails in front of you. Impress all your friends at the next games night with this easy to make, easy to drink cocktail!

The bingo fever recipe uses strawberry wine, a drink that has a rich history in the United Kingdom, with recipes going as far back as 1745, inspired by the arrival of the French bred strawberry to the UK. The French took two popular strawberry types from America and bred them together to make a juicy, sweet and crisp fruit which was perfect for fermenting to make the wine. Back then barrels of strawberries were left to ferment with sugar and water mixed into them, now-a-days of course when making your own strawberry wine yeasts and other ingredients are added to encourage the process to get to the delicious end result quicker and with less mess!

Don’t worry though, you are not required here to make your own strawberry wine (although the adventurous among you may just try it!) shop bought strawberry wine is perfect for the job and leaves you more time to think about getting ready for bingo night.
Did you know that the game was originally called “beano” but the name was changed after an overly excited woman yelled out “bingo” when she won the jackpot of her local game.

Here’s how to make the delicious cocktail:

  • 10 fresh strawberries
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • Sugar

  6. Serve chilled or add ice cubes to each glass.
