Drunken grapes

An easy yet stylish dessert!

This is an easy but so lovely dessert. This is great for a dinner party. This is a dessert for adults!

Why? Because seedless grapes are marinated in a combo of vodka, cream & brown sugar.

They are marinated in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Then blanched sliced almonds are roasted & put on top,……mmmmmmm…

Printable Recipe here!

Recipe: For 2 persons


250 gr green seedless grapes, cleaned & cut up in 2

2 tablespoons of cream

1.5 tablespoons of dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons of gluten-free vodka

200 gr of blanched sliced almonds


1. Take a medium large bowl & place the cut up seedless grapes in it.

2. Add the vodka, dark brown sugar & the cream. Mix well with a spoon so that the grapes are covered with the mixture. Place cling film over the top & place into the fridge for at leat 2 to 4.5 hours. I marinated the grapes for 4.5 hours.

3. 10 minutes before serving, take the bowl out of the fridge, otherwise the dessert will be too cold to eat.

4. Take a little non stick pan & place the slivered almonds in it, in 1 layer. Dry roast them until they are brown & golden, about 3 to 5 minutes on medium heat. Shake the pan often because you don’t want to burn the almonds. Turn the heat off & set aside.

5. Take your 2 fancy dessert glasses & divide the grapes mix into the 2 glasses. Spoon the marinade evenly over the 2 glasses. Scatter the roasted slivered almonds over the tops & dig in!

  15. What an elegant and lovely dessert! I love this, it's such a great idea. I love grapes but I never use them in much other than fruit salads. The almods look gorgeous. Another great one!

  16. Ok Sophie, you need to have a dinner party and invite all of us and serve this for dessert. We will never go home, I promise. This is incredible.

  17. Never heard of such a combination. Sounds perfect for summer evenings! I love the combo of grape and vodka.

  18. Oh YUM… vodka, brown sugar and cream, does it end up tasting like White Russians or Baileys or something like that?

  19. @ everyone: thanks: this is an easy yet wonderful dessert! I only use 2 tablespoons of vodka & cream: that isn't a lot, hey! @ Y: i came up with the idea because I had grapes in the fridge & I thaught that vodka with a bit of sugar & a bit of cream would add a differebt flavour to it!@Jessica @ Foodmayhem: Because you marinate the cut in 2 grapes in a mix of vodka, cream & 1.5 tablespoons of dark brown sugar. After 2 or 3 hours of marinating , it looks as this!!@ Kat: I don't know if it tastes like Bayleys because I never tasted it!

  20. wow, this is sooo easy! and yet so creative!! love the addition of "drunken" :)btw, I'm hosting SHF-Fruit & Nut event over at my blog this month, and this dessert would be a great entry if you'd like to send them in!
