Just in time for the new year – here’s a way to up your alcohol consumption whilst seeming to be healthy (we call it “Drinking Wisconsinbly” around about here)!
You steep grapes in a blend of prosecco and vodka, then roll ’em in sugar and – bonus! – then you get to drink the leftover prosecco and vodka!
I call that a holidaze miracle.
So, let us swozzle some grapes…
•Red and green seedless grapes
•1 bottle prosecco
•1/2 cup vodka
•1/2 cup sugar
Wash the grapes remove from the vine, and place in a large bowl.
Pour the bottle of prosecco over the grapes, then add the vodka and stir to combine.
Cover the bowl and stash in the fridge for at least one hour.
Remove the grapes from the liquid, transfering the liquid to a pticher for later enjoyment.
Place the grapes in a large rimmed pan – a roaster works a treat here – then sprinkle the sugar evenly over all.
Stir to combine, then transfer the grapes to another bowl for serving.
Confession: I have a couple of gatherings coming up in the next week or so, so I have one bowl of grapes ready to go for festivities tomorrow, and then a bag of prepared and sugared grapes stashed in the freezer for next week, because, who could so no to drunken frozen grapes?
Not my Book Club, I can guarantee you that!
Happy New Year!
