Ah, the sweet taste of a new year, filled with endless possibilities and optimism. You don’t need a new year for a fresh start, but there’s something about the change of date that seems to awaken and inspire.

While this year was nothing like we planned or dreamed for, it was a year of transition, challenges and personal reflection that reminded me who I am. For that, I am grateful.

How to Make Sugared Champagne Grapes

  1. Wash grapes thoroughly.
  2. Place grapes in a freezer friendly bowl and cover with champagne. A bottle of champagne being poured over a bowl of green grapes.
  3. Allow to marinate refrigerated for 12+ hours.
  4. Drain grapes.
  5. Toss in sugar.
  6. Freeze 2+ hours.

Tips

  • Use fresh grapes, and they should be ripe but firm.
  • Allow the grapes to sit in the Prosecco for up to 1 hour in the fridge before rolling them in sugar.
  • I prefer to freeze the grapes before eating them, but you don’t have to if you are in a hurry to serve them!

How to Store

  • Room Temperature – You can leave these out for up to 24 hours but of course they won’t stay frozen for very long! They are good either way, though.
  • Refrigerator – You can store your refrigerated grapes before (and after) serving for up to 48 hours. This means a total of up to four days refrigerated.
  • Freezer – Store your Prosecco grapes in the freezer in an airtight container or ziploc bag for up to a month.

  1. Hey , the longer they marinate, the better they are ? I wanted to keep them in the Prosecco for about 36 hours. Is that too long ?
