New Year's Champagne with Grapes

Created By: Yunhee Kim, Johnny Miller, Laura Moss, ILLOS TK




In Spain, revelers mark the new year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit is said to be a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape represents a good month, each sour grape a less-than-lucky one. 

Adopt the tradition by threading grapes onto skewers, and serve each in a glass of Champagne just before the countdown.

    this is a great idea and it is really pretty but you have to do the grapes right before serving the champagne. we did the grapes before our party started at 9 and froze them to keep them fresh. took the grapes out of the fridge at 11: 30 and by the time we made it to the toast the grapes has turned brown, they looked like olives and were not vibrant or appealing at all!

    From Barcelona, Spain. It's a nice and festive way to serve our traditional grapes in New Year's Eve. Happy 2009 !!
