Makes 6-8 servings


1 cup Sugar

1 cup Red wine (we used Cabernet Sauvignon)

3 Egg whites

Toasted nuts for garnish (walnuts, pistachios, or hazelnuts)


  1. In a medium saucepan, boil sugar and wine until thread point, about 230-235F or until it resembles a syrup.
  2. In a mixing bowl using the whisk attachment of an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly add the syrup to the egg whites in a steady flow. Reserve a small amount of the syrup for garnish.
  3. Beat mixture until it completely cools down and it is stiff and shiny.
  4. Pipe or spoon meringue into wine glasses. Drizzle in some reserved wine syrup and toasted nuts. Serve immediately.
