There are probably many recipes for this but here's mine.

You will need:

1 bottle of white wine, anything inexpensive will do
1/2 an ounce of dried woodruff (Galium odoratum)
2 or 3 tablespoons of caster or superfine sugar
1 punnet of fresh strawberries
A plastic jug with 1 litre capacity
A sieve

Pour the wine into the jug, add the woodruff and sugar and mix well.

Put into the fridge and leave overnight or up to a week.

Strain the wine, roughly chop the strawberries and add to the wine.

You can either keep the strawberries floating in the wine or, if you prefer a smooth wine, just allow the strawberries imbibe their flavour and stain the wine delicate pink shade, then strain.

Enjoy or use as an offering.
