Twelve Grapes of Luck

Grape Skewers in ChampagneA Spanish tradition called “las doce uvas de la suerte” dates back to 1895 and consists of eating a grape with each of the twelve bell strikes at midnight on New Year’s Eve.  Many believe this leads to a year of prosperity.

Green, black, and red grapes from California look festive on skewers served in champagne glasses or in punches, sangrias, fruit teas, and cocktails. Try this fabulous champagne cocktail recipe.
