Seductive Strawberry Zabaglione (zah-habl-YOH-nay)

Makes 2 servings

You can subsitiute champagne for the Marsala wine if you think it's more romantic, but the Marsala's flavor is fuller and sexier. You can also substitute raspberries if you prefer.

2 martini glasses
10-12 fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
2 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons sweet Marsala wine

1. Divide sliced strawberries evenly among two martini glasses. Set aside.

2. In a large metal or glass bowl, vigorously whisk 2 large egg yolks, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 2 tablespoons sweet Marsala wine until combined. Place the bowl over a saucepan filled with 1-2 inches of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Continue to whisk until doubled in volume and thick, about 4-5 minutes. Spoon over berries. Garnish with fresh mint and serve.
