Confession: I have been known to squeal in delight when I see champagne grapes at the farmers market. So what do I love so much about them? I love their tiny-ness, their unbelievable sweetness, and their versatility. They are the smallest of the seedless grapes, so not only are they delightfully pretty, but they are delicious, too! Take a boring green salad, throw in a few of these beauties, and all of a sudden you’ve created something special and company-worthy. Also for company, what dresses up a standard cheese platter like no other? A nice wooden serving board, and these little dollies, of course! Perhaps most importantly, their size makes them just perfect for drinks. Drop a few into a beautiful glass of Prosecco, and you have quite the special celebratory drink in hand.
Well now, speaking of celebratory drinks and reasons to serve them — we have news . . . we’re engaged! Jenn & Kurt were engaged on Martha’s Vineyard on Thursday night, and true to form, they celebrated with glasses of Prosecco, lobster bisque and lobster bruschetta!
So in the spirit of celebrating each and every day, pop open a bottle of your favorite sparkling wine, drop in a few little champagne grapes, and cheers to the good life!
