Summer is my favorite time of year.
I love the beautiful weather, but sometimes it can get a little hot for my taste. That’s why I love to relax with a cool and refreshing treat at the end of a long day. When I saw this delicious, easy-to-make recipe for the perfect adult summer snack, I had to makeit.
These wine soaked frozen grapes are exactly what I want on a hot summer day, so we decided to give this simple recipe a tryhere in the LittleThings office. The results? Everyone crowded into thekitchen helping themselves to seconds and thirds at theend of the workday, of course.

To make these delicious drunken grapes, start with white wine, sugar, green grapes, and an empty jar.
Measure out 2 cups of white wine. We used a Sauvignon Blanc, but feel free to use your favorite wine!
Measure out 1/4 cup of sugar. Pour the white wine and sugar into an empty jar.
Stir well to dissolve as much sugar as possible.
Add the grapes to the sugar wine in order to soak.
Cover the jar and place it in the refrigerator for 12 hours to allow the grapes to absorb as much flavor as possible.
After the grapes have soaked, remove the jar from the fridge. Pour out the wine marinade, but don’t throw it away. This sweet wine makes a delicious beverage to accompany your snack!
Scoop the grapes out of the jar and allow them to air dry.
Pour 1/4 cup of sugar onto a plate.
Place the marinated grapes in the sugar and roll them around.
Roll until all of the grapes are lightly coated in sugar.
Cover the plate of grapes and place in the freezer until frozen (about 34 hours).
Just a few hours later, you’ve got delicious drunken grapes for everyone to enjoy!
