Strawberry-Mint Sparkling Limeade Cocktail

A refreshing summer drink. Have berries, lime juice, water and wine well chilled before making. Substitute 3 cups chilled club soda or seltzer water for the wine, for a non-alcoholic version. This calls for agave nectar, but honey could be used. Agave is sweeter than honey so you may have to add more honey to taste.
