Storage

Make sure to store your champagne grapes in the refrigerator until ready to serve. To get the most out of your New Year's Eve treat, they should be served within 24 hours.

You can make them up to 2 days in advance, but best if enjoyed within the first 24 hours! Store them in the refrigerator or freezer before serving.

If you have any leftover grapes, you can freeze them for up to one month. You can freeze these infused grapes in a freezer bag or in a freezer safe container or jar.

Recipe Variations

Change grape flavor. We use seedless green grapes for our boozy grapes because we like the sweet flavor you get from that with the sugar, but you can change it up to red grapes or other grape flavors. We bet the cotton candy grapes would be incredible.

Use different champagne. Trade up your champagne brand or using different types of liquor.

Make kid friendly. Instead of champagne, make sugared grapes and then infuse them with sparkling cider so the kids can enjoy these. You could also try some grape juice or ginger ale for different ways to make them.

Tips and Tricks

  • Always rinse your grapes to clean them and pat the dry with a paper towel before starting to make these sugared grapes.
  • Properly store your leftover grapes so they last as long as possible.
  • You don't need an expensive champagne, you just need a cheap champagne for this easy recipe.

Can I make these with other fruit?

Certainly! To vary up this recipe, try adding other fruits like Berries or Citrus to the mix for a fun and flavorful twist. Try adding some vodka along with the sparkling champagne for an extra fun twist.

What are champagne grapes?

Did you know there's an actual variety of grapes called a champagne grape? Well, there is! In fact, they're also called Black Corinth or Zante Currant grapes.

Typically, they're grown in small clusters and they're very small in diameter but they have a very sweet flavor, making them perfect for snacks, appetizers and things of that nature.

Are champagne grapes sweet?

If you're asking about the actual variety of grapes called champagne grapes- yes, they're sweet. And if you are asking about these sugared grapes- yes, they're also sweet because they're covered in sugar! So, no matter which one you're talking about or questioning, just know they're both sweet.
