My love affair with frozen sugared grapes begin when I was just but a wee little nipper. My mom would dazzle guests with these frozen sugared grapes for many occasions from her monthly bridge group to our annual 4th of July tennis tournament. I remember sneaking through the kitchen pretending to need a glass of water on a mission to pluck a couple of those frosty little sweet orbs to shove into my mouth before darting back upstairs. I’m certain that I did not go unnoticed as I scurried out of the kitchen looking like a chipmunk as my cheeks were stocked full. But looking back, the risk of looking like a chipmunk far outweighed the sweet delight.

Sometimes my mom would serve the frozen sugared grapes on a large platter filled with many savory cheeses and other times she would save the sparkling treat until the end of the evening when everyone was ready for a sweet dessert. I have chosen to display the frozen sugared grapes on their own to highlight their beautiful simplicity.

These frozen sugared grapes can also double as a delightful sugar encrusted ice cube bouncing within a fun frothy drink. Red, white and blue frozen sugared grapes make a simple appetizer, unique ice cube or festive sweet dessert to cool you and your guests off this 4th of July. Not to mention the whole summer through!

Wishing you a fun & refreshing 4th!
