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:

Ingredients

  • 10 fresh strawberries
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • Sugar
  • Lemon
  • Water
  • Strawberry wine

Preparation

  1. Wash the strawberries and mint leaves.
  2. Slice the strawberries thinly and zest the lemon.
  3. In two separate shallow dishes, pour a little water and a little sugar. Dip each glass rim into the water and then the sugar to make a sugared rim.
  4. Pour the strawberry wine into the rimmed glasses.
  5. Add a small handful of sliced strawberries and mint leaves and lemon zest to each glass.
  6. Serve chilled or add ice cubes to each glass.

Equipment

  • Large cocktail glasses
  • Citrus zester
  • Chopping board and knife
  • 2 shallow dishes
