May Wine


Woodruff is easy to grow in a shady spot in a garden or in a container. It is good ground cover and a pretty plant. The blossoms appear for about two weeks in May.


May Wine

  • 2 fifths semisweet white wine (such as sauterne)
  • 1 cup woodruff leaves and blossoms, washed and stems removed

May Wine Punch

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 fifth of extra dry Champagne


May Wine

  1. Early in the day the May wine is to be served, place the woodruff leaves and flowers in a container large enough to hold all the wine, then add the wine.
  2. Cover and chill in the refrigerator.

May Wine Punch

  1. Just before serving, place a block of ice and the fruits in a punch bowl.
  2. Strain the white wine as you pour it over the ice and fruits.
  3. Add the Champagne.
  4. Decorate with woodruff leaves and white flowers that have been rinsed off.

You can also make the punch without the fruit, and just pour it from a nice pitcher.
