Also known as Drunken Grapes or Boozy Grapes.

 Sugar Champagne Grapes


Champagne soaked grapes make a fun snack for girls night. They also are fun garnishes for cocktails. Add two or three frozen grapes to help chill your cocktail or thread them on bamboo skewers and add to your drinks.

As well, serve these as a light dessert. They’re beautiful displayed in a martini glass or champagne coupe with a sprig of mint and a dollop of whipped cream.

I used cheap champagne, but you can also use rum or tequila.

 Champagne Grapes


  1. You can use any variety of grape, green grapes, red grapes, etc but they need to be SEEDLESS! Choose big, pretty grapes.
  2. Next, wash the grapes and pull them off the stem.
  3. Soak the grapes in a bowl with champagne for eight hours or overnight. Typically, I cover and refrigerate them but you can leave on the countertop.
  4. Next, drain the grapes and allow them to dry slightly.
  5. Finally, roll the grapes in the sugar and serve.
  6. For a frozen treat or to use as ice cubes in your cocktails, freeze the grapes for a few hours.

To freeze the grapes, follow the directions below then pop them into the freezer. Most notable, like my How to Freeze Bananas for Smoothies post, you need to freeze the grapes in a single layer. Otherwise, they’ll be frozen in one large clump! Place the grapes on a sheet pan or flat plate (that fits in your freezer) and freeze. Once frozen you can transfer and store them in a container or freezer bag.

  1. I want to make these for a bridal shower. How far ahead can I roll them in sugar or should I freeze them?

    1. I’d make them and freeze them up to 3 days. Otherwise, if you want to refrigerate them, they really need to be made no more than 12 hours in advance.
