 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Cranberry juice
    1       c            Dry red wine
    1                    Cinnamon stick, about
                         3 inches long
    1       pk           (425g) frozen raspberries in
                         Light syrup
    1       tb           Freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1       tb           (or 2T) granulated sugar,
                         Optional
      1/2   c            Sour cream or whipping cream
                         Optional
 
   Boil cranberry juice with wine and cinnamon stick over
   high heat until reduced to 1 cup, about 9 minutes.
   Meanwhile, puree berries in a blender. Strain and
   discard seeds. Remove cinnamon stick from reduced wine
   mixture. Stir in berry mixture. Pour into a bowl.
   Taste and add lemon juice and 1 to 2 tablespoons
   sugar, as needed. (Soup will taste less sweet when
   chilled.) Refrigerate at least until cold, about 3
   hours or up to 2 days. Serve chilled with a swirl of
   cream in centre.
