New Year's Tradition

Cocktail Accoutrement.

I am always looking for a way to bring on the good luck! It doesn’t hurt when the good luck tradition looks beautiful and is easy to pull off.

In Spain, revelers mark the New Year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit is said to be a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape represents a good month, each sour grape a less-than-lucky one.

Adopt the tradition by threading grapes onto skewers, and serve each in a glass of Champagne just before the countdown.

If you see me at the grocery store taste testing all the grapes for the sweetest…you’ll know why.

Funny, never heard about this before. But it's a nice idea! Maybe I'm going to surprise my friends with this tomorrow :)
