Frozen Grape


Tequila-Lime Frozen Grape Delight


  • 1 pound seedless grapes (red or green)
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  1. Soak the Grapes: Wash the grapes thoroughly and remove them from the stems. Place the grapes in a large bowl and pour the tequila and vodka over them. Make sure the alcohol covers the grapes entirely. Let them soak for 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Prepare Zesty Sugar Mixture: In a separate bowl, combine the granulated sugar with the lime zest. Mix well until the lime zest is evenly distributed in the sugar.
  3. Drain and Coat: After the soaking period, drain the grapes and pat them dry with a paper towel. Roll each grape in the zesty sugar mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated. The sugar will add sweetness and the lime zest will enhance the citrus flavor.
  4. Freeze: Place the sugar-coated grapes on a parchment-lined baking sheet, making sure they are not touching each other. Put the baking sheet in the freezer and let the grapes freeze for at least 4 hours or until they are solid.
  5. Store in an Airtight Container: Once frozen, transfer the grapes into an airtight container. This will help maintain their freshness and prevent any freezer odors from affecting their taste.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: When ready to enjoy, take the frozen grapes out of the freezer and serve them directly from the container. The frozen grapes will have a delightful combination of sweetness from the sugar, a burst of citrus from the lime zest, and a subtle kick from the tequila and vodka.

Here are some tips to enhance your Tequila-Lime Frozen Grape Delight experience:

  1. Choose Fresh and Ripe Grapes: Use fresh and ripe grapes for the best flavor. Ensure they are thoroughly washed and completely dry before soaking them in the alcohol mixture.
  2. Use Good-Quality Tequila and Vodka: Since the flavor of the alcohol will infuse into the grapes, opt for good-quality tequila and vodka. This will contribute to a smoother and more enjoyable taste.
  3. Experiment with Grape Varieties: Try using a mix of red and green grapes for a colorful presentation and a variety of flavors. Red grapes tend to be slightly sweeter, while green grapes offer a bit of tartness.
  4. Adjust Sugar and Lime Zest to Taste: If you prefer a sweeter or more citrusy flavor, adjust the amount of sugar and lime zest accordingly. Taste the sugar mixture before rolling the grapes to ensure it meets your preferences.
  5. Add a Hint of Salt: Consider adding a pinch of salt to the sugar and lime zest mixture. Salt can enhance the overall flavor and balance the sweetness, creating a more nuanced taste.
  6. Don’t Rush the Freezing Process: Allow sufficient time for the grapes to freeze completely. This ensures a satisfying and icy texture when you bite into them.
  7. Serve with a Lime Wedge: Garnish your Tequila-Lime Frozen Grapes with a lime wedge when serving. Squeezing a bit of fresh lime juice over the frozen grapes can add an extra burst of citrus flavor.
  8. Pair with a Mint Garnish: For a refreshing touch, consider adding a small mint sprig as a garnish. The mint aroma complements the lime and enhances the overall experience.
  9. Experiment with Different Citrus Zests: While the recipe calls for lime zest, feel free to experiment with other citrus zests like lemon or orange for a unique twist on the flavor profile.
  10. Share Responsibly: These frozen grapes contain alcohol, so be mindful of their potency. Enjoy them in moderation, especially if you’re sharing with guests or consuming them on a weeknight.

With these tips, you can tailor the Tequila-Lime Frozen Grape Delight to your taste preferences and create a delightful frozen treat that’s perfect for any occasion
