I was thrilled to be included in The Foodie Blog Roll and wanted to celebrate it!Popping a bublee??.....nahhhh ....Well it meant to sit alone and enjoy...Instead I decided to make something with wine and I lurvve white wine!!!!!!!!!!
This dessert is quite simple to make and can be made ahead and kept in refrigeration for about 4-5 days.And I must acknowledge its one of the most stylish desserts that I have ever made!Its an ideal dessert for Valentines as well!

It serves 2
1/2 C cold water
190 ml white wine
Lemon juice 1 tsp
Maraschino Cherries- 5-6
To make gelee,pour 1/4 cup of water in a large bowl ,sprinkle gelatin and allow it to soften for a few mins.
In a pan, warm remaining water and sugar,stir till sugar is dissolved.Pour this warm syrup over gelatin and stir till it gets dissolved.It will foam up a bit!Thats why a large bowl! Add white wine and lemon juice and pour this mix over cherries in wine glasses or goblets and refrigerate for about 4 hours.
The cherries can either be put after the gelee is partially set,say after 2 hours or so or make layers of set gelee,fruit and top up with some more gelee.
