For added flavor and depth, substitute champagne for the white wine.

Chilled Strawberry Soup
1 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups strawberries
1 cup orange juice
1/8 tsp. ground cardamom
fresh mint sprigs
Place the wine and the sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir often to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat. Meanwhile, puree the strawberries in a blender. Add the strawberries, orange juice and cardomom to the wine mixture.
Place in the refrigerator to chill. Before serving, beat the heavy cream with a mixer until thick and frothy. Add one spoonful of cream to each bowl of soup and swirl. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
