Drunken Grapes and Jenny’s Sunday BBQ

These boozy grapes were super easy and everyone loved them at Jenny’s BBQ today. Simply slice some red (or green) grapes and soak them in Amaretto over night. Stick them on some tooth picks and tadaa, you’ve got a party pleaser.

The rich almond-y flavor of the Amaretto and the sweet and sour grapes worked really well.

Truthfully,  any kind of fruit soaked in alcohol will be a party pleaser … It’s a no brainer. I had to use the left over grapes from these and the Amaretto just smelled so good when I uncorked it.

BBQ classics …

Here is me (I know, I know, finally another photo of myself, I’m shy) and the hostess with the mostess Jenny from Savory Style.  Check her out!  Jenny’s blog was one of the first to inspire me to start my own.

And this… this was clearly a mans idea. Tasty yes, but good lord, that’s a cheese burger on a Krispy Cream donut! And I thought my bacon, chocolate chip cookies were indulgent.

Last but not least my favorite party guest, Jenny’s dog Eddie. I think he rocks my hat better than I do.

Great party Jenny… Okay, off to watch True Blood.

    Ann isn’t the picture kind of mouth watering? And Food Gracious, yea a few people had one I think. I’ve heard they are really good.

    I love that apricot beer too! It was the first time I had it. Really good. Not too sweet like some fruity beers.
